Saturday, March 16, 1996
University of California at Berkeley

The Virtual Classroom: Writing Across the Internet is a one-day conference dedicated to exploring the educational uses of Internet-based communications environments. This conference will focus specifically on the instructional use of Multi-user Domain, Object-Oriented environments: MOOs, MUDs, and the newest member of the family, Web-MOOs (or WOOs).

Papers on the topics of virtual classroom interaction, gender and virtual environments, student MOO (or Web-MOO) projects, MOO-based collaborative inter-class projects, and papers focusing on social/theoretical issues pertaining to student MOO practices are welcome. In addition, we encourage papers concerning foreign language or other discipline-specific uses of MOOs, Web-MOOs, or the virtual classroom in general.
