Computer Conferencing for Guidance and Support in the OU.
Blanchfield, Lynne; Patrick, Ian; Simpson, Ormond
British Journal of Educational Technology, v31 n4 p295-306 Oct 2000
Describes the United Kingdom Open University's FirstClass(TM) Computer conferencing system and its role in student support, taking as an example the way it is used for course choice. Suggests that while there are students who use it freely and apparently derive benefit from it, there are also substantial issues to be addressed about its relative unpopularity with students as a support medium. (Contains 6 references.) (Author/AEF)
