Abstract

Over the last two hundred years, a sophisticated, broadly applied conventional learning system (CLS) has evolved. The CLS has found its most common expression in face-to-face, formal classroom structures. However, with the advent of the Internet and a series of high technology possibilities, the CLS has been extended from the face-to-face classroom to virtual, online learning environments. Yet, most e-learning opportunities are designed to mimic the practices of the classroom. The educational community needs an alternative online learning system. The Community of Practice Learning System (COPLS)(patent pending) offers an alternative to the CLS. This presentation will describe the COPLS system and present one example of its use to deliver graduate level courses.
