Collaboration among Faculty, Students, Information Systems, and Administration

Friday, January 1, 1999


In the beginning of 1997, Le Moyne College anthropology professor Ray Bucko, S.J., with the support of Office of Information Systems, started a "Virtual Classroom" project. The goals were to enhance courses through collaboration with other institutions using the Internet via web interface, to enhance communication among students and professors in different institutions in the United States and Europe, to accustom students to using electronic communication, and to utilize available electronic media and resources in the learning process. An online syllabus, schedule, and links to assignments were provided the students. The project used Basic Support for Cooperative Work (BSCW) as the centerpiece software. It utilizes a web interface to provide a collaborative computing environment. The project also used a RealAudio server to deliver reading guides and suggestions for class discussions, all recorded in stream data format.
