The Use of Small Groups in Computer-Based Training: A Review of Recent Literature.
Stephenson, Stanley D.
Computers in Human Behavior, v10 n3 p243-60 Fall 1994
Recent work in small-group computer-based training (CBT) reveals that the approach does not necessarily lead to higher achievement. Many of the studies, however, have methodological weaknesses. If proper guidance and structure can be provided to group members, using small group CBT should lead to higher achievement than individual CBT. (Contains 66 references.) (KRN)
