Abstract

This paper reports on an investigation into the use of real-time voice groupware to support students on a computing course offered by the Open University, UK. The main objective of the investigation was to assess the feasibility and pedagogical advantage of deploying synchronous conferencing technology on a large population computing course to complement existing face-to-face and asynchronous online support for its students. In this paper we report on the findings from such an investigation, and draw a number of conclusions and recommendations covering feasibility, scalability and best practice in the use of voice groupware for eLearning.
