Abstract

One of the major challenges to remote communities is to provide quality education to their inhabitants. Rural Advanced Community of Learners (RACOL) is bringing a new standard for distance delivery to rural students. RACOL uses a combination of the Community of Learners Models of Instruction (Brown & Campione, 1994), n-way broadcast quality real-time video classes in which the instructor and all students can be seen by all participants, state of the art visualization using interactive whiteboards, individual computers equipped with workgroup software and a recording of all synchronous communication for later access by students or teachers. This paper describes the needs assessment and system design for RACOL.
