Web Site Enhancement of Traditional Classroom Pedagogy.
Hiles, Timothy W.
This paper describes the development of a World Wide Web site in an art history class at the University of Tennessee. The first section of the paper discusses digital technology in the art history classroom, including a comparison of the quality of digital images with slide projection. The second section describes a Web site created for a history of photography class that includes images, articles, a syllabus, reading list, and definition of terms. The next section addresses challenges in creating the site, including the instructor's lack of knowledge about creating a Web site, the amount of time involved, and cost; student involvement in order to overcome some of these obstacles is also covered. Copyright, specifically the legality of reproducing images and articles on the Web, is considered in the fourth section. The fifth section discusses student feedback and presents results of a poll of the class to determine use of the Web site, including frequency of use, method of access, and general response. It is concluded that the project was a success for all concerned. (MES)
