Abstract

The article discusses the benefits of electronically-guided or asynchronous student internships. The idea of electronic communication during the course of an internship program allows students to juggle busy careers and home life while still enjoying effective advisement. The author of this article discusses the evolution of this course design, as students become more comfortable with the technology and more familiar with peer feedback. The author describes the course and the "Electronic Campus" and how the essay forum and message board work together to improve student performance. Because of the structure of the system, teachers and fellow students adopt a posture of coach to participating students.
