Abstract

The potential for region-wide, national and international, live, inter-active online learning using CHAT - a synchronous textual communication - has been under exploited in both distance learning and to support on campus delivery. This proposal suggests some small scale research that may serve to redress this under utilisation. The research will take account of wide public experience of internet CHAT, especially by the younger generation, and will seek to show how this, now common, public mode of communication can be incorporated into educational provision, so as to benefit learner motivation and participation in the study process either on campus or online
