Abstract

This paper considers the student use of electronic communications in two second-year university Biology courses. Over a three-year period, student contributions to a Web-based discussion forum, an e-mail list serve, and e-mail directly to the instructor, were recorded. A number of characteristics of these electronic communications such as the number of student users, time of day used, types of use, and differences in student performance between the on-campus lecture, distance education correspondence, and Web-based versions of these courses will be discussed.
