Examples at UVM
The following list is a loose compilation of on-line instructional
activity at uvm -- including "home pages in progress", list
servers, and newsgroups. These efforts begin to show a variety of
approaches and diversity of results. All classes won't electrify the same
way. Even different classes from the same instructor will work out

(3-3) Introduction to interactions among plants and their environments.
Dynamics of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems emphasizing populations,
physiological ecology, and experimental design and analysis.

solving. Designed to provide a foundation for further studies in
computer science. Credit not given for more than one in the pair CS

documentation of student projects.
- UAlberta SLIS 598 -
Applications of technology in Libraries
- These term projects were created by the students in the LIS 598
(Applications of Technology in Libraries) course in the School of
Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta. They
contain a substantial amount of useful i nformation on a number of
topics of current interest, and are presented here with the hope that
they may be useful to the library community.
LIS 200 - Information in Society
Electronic Classroom Checklist
Brian, Using WWW / Mosaic to Support Classroom-Based Education:
An Experience Report
- O'Donnell, James J., New Tools for Teaching
, Department of Classical Studiesand Center for Computer Analysis
of Texts, University of Pennsylvania. Presents an interactive WWW
exploration and demonstration of practical applications of Internet
technology for teaching, including his own work at Penn.
- Earth 002
The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at the Pennsylvania State
University has made available a series of multimedia resources that
support instruction in Earth System Science. Designed for the Earth
Sciences 002 course for non-science majors at Penn State, these
materials would be very useful in middle and secondary science classes
as well. These materials are an interdisciplinary introduction to the
processes, interactions, and evolution of the Earth's biosphere,
geosphere, and hydrosphere.
Electronic Classroom at UCSD is a joint academic / library project.
- Engines for
Education is a "hyper-book" written by Roger Schank,
Director of The Institute for Learning Sciences, Northwestern University,
and Chip Cleary, a graduate student of Dr. Schank, about what's wrong with
the education system, how to reform it, and especially, about the role of
educational technology in that reform.
- The Focus on Teaching
Project is a University of Michigan seminar series.
- Global Network
Academy is a consortium of online higher education projects. See the
educational and research organizations pointer.
- The Purdue University Online
Writing Laboratory The Writing Lab [allows] to talk with tutors
about planning and writing their papers. On-line, the Writing Lab
offers other services as well, including some of our materials on
topics such as commas, resumes, formats (such as MLA or APA) for
citing sources, non-sexist language, and other information. You can
also find useful links to sources of information for your research
papers and other writing.
Sewanee Paperless Classroom Project aims are two: first, to make
the classroom transition from paper-based products and "book
thinking" to electronically-based instructional materials, and
second, to lead non-science students into this project in a way that
is inviting and non-threatening.
of Connecticut Virtual Classroom Project [...] will explore the
issues involved in providing instructional materials over the campus
network as an extension of the Library's traditional Reserve
function. As a pilot project, it is highly experimental and is subject
to change without notice. The Virtual Classroom / Electronic Course
Reserves make course readings and reserve materials accessible at any
hour to the University of Connecticut community. Reserve materials
include both text and image files, and are available to users for
viewing on-line, saving to a local drive, and printing.
University provides an augmented catalog which contains course
syllabi as well as descriptions. Of particular interest is the full
text searching that allows rapid identification of courses relevant to
a particular interest.
World Lecture Hall At the Uniersity of Texas at Austin Web Central
contains links to pages created by faculty worldwide who are using the
Web to deliver class materials. For example, you will find course
syllabi, assignments, lecture notes, exams, class calendars,
multimedia textbooks, etc.
