Computer Mediated Communication

The successful use of computer-mediated communications in instruction depends on many factors. Some of them are technological, of course: the software and hardware must work well, students must have access to the right technologies, and so forth. However, the most important factors are human and social. Students must be prepared to use the facilities; often there must be a skilled moderator to guide a group in the right directions: the tasks that students must accomplish must be meaningful and appropriate to the medium.
