Implementing On-Line Learning Environments.
Gibbs, William J.
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v10 n1 p16-37 Fall 1998
Describes an online college course and student perceptions of the virtual-classroom experience. Students appreciated course flexibility and convenience and found it conducive to thoughtful analysis of class questions and commentary. However, they felt isolated from peers and instructor, and lack of face-to-face interaction hindered communication. They spent more time in the virtual classroom than in the traditional classroom.
