Abstract

An electronic bulletin board using DEC-Notes as the software platform was provided for students in a large second-year college biology course to improve communications between students and between students and the course instructor. The level of use of the system and student responses to an end-of-term questionnaire indicated that the bulletin board had been successful in fostering interaction between students, as well as improving student-instructor interaction. Types of student use of the bulletin board included discussions, comments, course-content questions, course-related questions, and assignment approvals. Students also used email for "private" communications with the instructor.
