Description/Summary

Brent Mai (with Alexius Smith Macklin, Leslie Reynolds and Sheila R. Curl) is a contributing author, "Distance Education in Virtual Classrooms: The Model and the Assessment"

Book description: As distance education moves more classrooms into a virtual world, students and faculty engage in a learning environment where on-demand instruction, hands-on training, and immediate access to information are available at any given moment. This evolution of intellectual exchange, however timely and convenient, makes a case for establishing and implementing high standards of excellence in information literacy across the curriculum. At Purdue University, members of the libraries’ faculty received a statewide grant in the spring of 1998 to develop a required, one-credit, distance education course designed to teach information strategies to undergraduate students in the School of Technology. Because of the high demand for this course, the libraries’ faculty continue to make use of emerging technologies to reach students at the main campus, as well as those registered across the state. To assess the effectiveness of a distance program versus the traditional classroom, a comparison study was conducted.
