Abstract

Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia offers a unique set-ting for research in Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC). Acadia, in the fall of 1996, embarked on a laptop project with IBM corporate support now coined "The Acadia Advantage." Of particular use to faculty is the Acadia Courseware Management Environment (ACME), a piece of software designed and implemented by the Acadia Institute for Teaching and Technology (Sandbox). The ACME courseware offers many features such as online course descriptions, notes, testing, web links, and includes a discussion group setting. Elec-tronic Discussion Groups (E.D.G.) hold great potential as an in-novative method for engaging students in substantive academic dialogue. This paper will offer a model for the implementation of an E.D.G. "coding system" called "cognotes." The system developed has its roots in Language Arts journal coding and rep-resents a distinctly unique approach to promoting quality asyn-chronous discussion.
