Playing Out the Realities of Web-based Bulletin Boards: Enhancing Face to Face Learning.
King, Kathleen P.
New Horizons in Adult Education, v15 n1 Spr 2001
Using web-based bulletin boards in classes elicited enthusiastic responses from 109 graduate education students. They felt it enhanced learning, created a greater sense of community and encouraged participation through its use. Some negative aspects of web-based conferencing (need for self-direction and technological literacy, lack of spontaneity and nonverbal communication, false anonymity) also emerged. (SK)
