Johnson, J., Roach, T., and Hames, R. (199) Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, Volume II, Number I, Spring 1999 State University of West Georgia, Distance Education

Distance learning is an emerging model for the presentation and administration of educational content in schools across the country, at both secondary and post-secondary institutions. The forum used at the State University of West Georgia combines both distance learning and on-line Internet instruction. This study addresses the implementation of distance learning instruction in a selected business education graduate course in keyboarding methodology. Keyboarding experts across the country were identified to collaborate with the instructor and a class of graduate students at West Georgia. Distance learning technology was used to link the experts with the students as they discussed 86 issues in teaching keyboarding. Through the use of chat rooms, bulletin boards, e-mail, and telephone conversations, the group of experts and students discussed keyboarding methodologies pertinent to today’s keyboarding classrooms. The study demonstrated a successful and rewarding experience for both students and keyboarding experts.
