Asynchronous learning networks as a virtual classroom
A historical perspective is provided; “community” is defined as a social network; studies of how computer-mediated communication (CMC) affects community interaction are summarized; examples of different kinds of communities communicating through the Internet are surveyed; and look at asynchronous learning networks (ALNs) as an example of an online community.
