Abstract

In the fall of 1994, the Center for Excellence at Northern Arizona University began an experimental program of offering the complete course work required for elementary teacher certification via Interactive Instructional Television (IITV) on NAUnet. One course, ECI 447: Technology in the Classroom, remained problematic for this initiative because it was a hands-on computer competency course. NAU made an initial investment to create a “floating lab” of 20 laptop computers. Once that effort was accomplished, the ECI 447 was scheduled to be taught over IITV, during the fall semester, 1996. The course objectives were accomplished by using Timbuktu Pro™ 3.0 , FlashNotes™, Netscape Chat™ 2.0, and FreePPP™ 2.5v2 software.
