Middleton, Michael R. (1993) Continuing professional education using collaborative conferencing on computer networks.

Abstract

Greatly increased access to network telecommunications facilities such as the Internet has led to the development of formal courses offered through the networks. For information professionals, network access has made possible the integrated delivery of educational material with access to the resources that the professionals are learning about. This "distributed education" is considered with respect to: course design and learning objectives; conferencing systems and software support; computer-mediated communication and collaborative learning; delivery of resource materials and effect on library processes; and assessment of performance of participants.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
