Using Technology to Build a Community of Writers in Developmental Writing
Megeehon, Alexandria
NADE Digest, v4 n1 p19-27 Fall 2008
Using technology in a developmental classroom, particularly a classroom platform such as WebCT, can help provide a sense of community in a developmental writing course. The rationale for designing a hybrid developmental writing course is discussed as well as the ways in which students perceived themselves as "real writers" as a result of the way that their writing was submitted and critiqued on WebCT. A blended learning environment has become an integrated component of writing instruction at the two-year branch campus that is the location of this study.
