Abstract

An electronic learning environment manages homework assignments for more than 3,000 students in large enrollment courses at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Originally developed to fulfill a critical need in the Chemistry Department, the system has been so successful that it has been expanded to other departments and supports new, interactive forms of learning over the World Wide Web. Careful and thorough evaluation has been an integral part of the system's development, which has now been adopted by ten departments and seven other institutions. We report here on the costs and benefits of using the basic system and on significant increases in student performance.
