Author:Judi Harris; Univ. of Texas at Austin
Description: An Internet-based interpersonal resource online since February of 1993: a searchable database of experts and a way to request "matches" that helps teachers with access to the Internet locate other Internet account-holders who are experts in different disciplines, in order to set up curriculum-based, electronic exchanges among the teachers, their students, and the experts. In this way, the interaction that occurs among teachers and students face-to-face in the classroom is supplemented and extended by exchanges that occur among teachers, students, and subject matter experts asynchronously via electronic mail. Research presentations and manuscripts are available onsite.

Levels: Elementary, Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)
