Authentic Interaction in a Virtual Classroom: Leveling the Playing Field in a Graduate Seminar.
Belcher, Diane
Computers and Composition, v16 n2 p253-67 1999
Looks at how a class newsgroup impacted on class participation in a graduate seminar that included students who initially appeared at a possible disadvantage--linguistically, educationally, and experientially. Discusses these culturally diverse students' contributions to the asynchronous class discussion. Raises concerns about limitations of the apparent empowering and democratizing effects of computer networking. (RS)
