This study compared face-to-face seminars with asynchronous computer conferencing in the same information management class to determine if computer supported co-operative learning (CSCL) could maintain learning quality and if computer mediated communication (CMC) could promote critical thinking. Concludes face-to-face seminars are better for creative problem exploration and idea generation and computer conferencing for linking ideas, interpretation, and problem integration. (PEN)
