Palloff, Rena M., and Keith Pratt. “Lessons from the Cyberspace Classroom.” 17th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning.
Abstract: Teaching in cyberspace involves more than taking traditional teaching models and transferring them to a different medium. The use of online distance learning is creating changes in the delivery of education in general. Changes in online distance learning are also occurring rapidly, predominantly in the ways courses are developed and delivered. This paper and session, based on the presenters’ experience of over 7 years of online teaching and their two books, Building Learning Communities in Cyberspace and Lessons from the Cyberspace Classroom, explores best practices in delivering online courses.
The paper is available on the conference website here.
