ENFI first stood for English Natural Language Instruction when it was housed at Gallaudet and intended for writing instruction for predominantly deaf students. Later, the acronym stood for Electronic Networks for Interaction as network writing instruction was used with more traditional student populations. The most accessible history of ENFI is contained in the pages of Network-Based Classrooms: Promises and Realities edited by Bruce, Peyton and Batson. However, the development of ENFI is captured dramatically in the pages of EnfiLOG, a publication produced by Batson at Gallaudet during the programís development. Although it is difficult to find print-based copies of EnfiLOG, the publicationís influence on the development of network-based writing instruction is evident in references to the publication in Computers and Composition through the late 1980s and early 1990s.
