Using Web-based Techniques and Communication to Support Learning in the Humanities

Dr Sherry Southard, Phillip Rubens.


In order to examine using web-based techniques and communication to support learning in the humanities, we first examine the research that underlies the three dominant issues (prior experience, communication and computer anxiety, and socioeconomic status) and describe how these three issues manifest themselves when using web-based techniques and communication to support learning in the humanities.

Then we offer a set of guidelines based on limiting knowledge demands, creating supportive designs, relying on group strengths, and recognizing the limitations of possible interventions to help information developers and web designers meet the new demands these issues impose on the audience definition process.

Especially important to learning in the humanities are communication (email, threaded discussion, and the like) and research (online library resources, major search engines).
