Title: Web-based Course in Legal Skills Courses
Author: Zanglein, Jayne Elizabeth
Abstract: Law professors increasingly are using the Internet to supplement their course materials and enhance their teaching skills. They are using it to create interactive, educational computer software, to provide a forum for peer review of student work products to encourage collaborative learning, to provide a structured out-of-classroom learning environment, to foster a tighter community of educators, to extend office hours, to supplement and update class materials, and to promote faculty collegiality. But does Web-based instruction work in the classroom? This is the question to answer. In this article, the authors focus on several skills-based law courses and examine the effectiveness of a few technologies in their traditional classroom. Part I explores the various learning style theories that were researched during the course of the project to explain their successes and failures. Part II discusses the pedagogical attributes of Web-based instruction. Part III reports on their use of learning theory and technology in skills-based courses. In part IV the authors assess their exploratory efforts, and in part V they suggest future directions.
