Abstract

ABSTRACT This paper describes experiences with on-line and in-class sections of a writing-intensive course, including a collaborative library literacy unit. It reports on a mid-semester software change and offers a comparative outcome assessment. The authors, whose experience reflects that of other on-line writing instructors, suggest that on-line students may self-select into an informal ‘elite’ and make recommendations concerning course design, class size, and software needs.
