Computers and Composition, v14 n2 p179-88 Aug 1997
Suggests that teaching online can be advantageous to a teacher with a physical disability. Notes that the teacher's written voice may have more authority than the physical voice without the interference of students' perceptions of the teacher's physical body. Shows that both teachers and students can benefit from the freedom from concern about appearance and its effect on others. (RS)
