Voice annotation of visual representations in computer-mediated collaborative learning
MetadataShow full item record
New computer-based communications technologies-such as electronic conferencing, electronic mail, communal hypertext, and communal hypermedia databases-make it possible for people to collaborate in their learning, even when separated from one another in space and time. The development of computer environments supporting collaborative learning in enriched ways provides the goal and context for the research outlined here. This chapter explores the potential value of voice annotations in computer-mediated collaborative learning. Some purposes for voice annotations are examined. Findy an outline of a small-scale study where voice annotations have been used to support collaborative writing processes is given.
