Abstract

The field of research on computer-mediated communication (CMC) in education is a relatively new research area. A summary of the latest research is useful to show what methodologies and research topics that have been emphasized in order to be better prepared for the future by uncovering areas where there is a lack of research. The study examines articles published in the Computers & Education and Educational Media International journals between 2000 and 2004. It reveals that the field is dominated by empirical articles that adopt a pluralistic approach which investigate the usage of asynchronous text-based CMC systems by learners and instructors engaged in blended education. We conclude by exemplifying how these findings may guide future research.
