Creating Optimized Learning Environments: A Course Using Interactive Web Elements.
Estes, Thomas; Bronack, Steve; Schoeny, Zahrl
The use of the World Wide Web for promoting learning provides great potential for both students and faculty. Using both synchronous and asynchronous interactions permits the professors and the students to maximize their time together and utilize their individual learning and presentation skills in a collaborative effort that yields substantial dividends in the form of learning and productivity. This paper focuses on one course, "Reading in Content Areas," that is facilitated through the use of the interactive opportunities provided by the World Wide Web. The specific course components and their use are described, including the syllabus, discussion group, journals, course Web sites, class notes, and Web quests. Course evaluation results are discussed in terms of: development of a community of emergent professionals, instructor development, student-instructor relationships, conversations over time, and frustration.
