Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis paper presents a case study in adapting an existing educational pen-based groupware system for use in a distance-learning environment. After reviewing the key characteristics of the original educational groupware system, we describe our motivation for adapting the system for use at a distance. Next we describe the process that was used to carry out this adaptation, the problems that were encountered, and the resulting solutions that were developed. The paper concludes with the results of a user study demonstrating that the modified system can be successfully used at a distance.
