Abstract

This paper considers instructional design issues involving a new generation of math-friendly e-learning tools, such as WebEQ with Blackboard and NetTutor's Whiteboard, which address the ongoing problem of the posting of math notation and diagrams in online courses. Of the two, NetTutor's Whiteboard comes closer to the ideal of two-way instructor-student communication of math notation and diagrams in asynchronous and synchronous modalities. However since NetTutor is not a full course management system, instructors must design their courses with two systems. The ability to work more easily with math notation and diagrams brooks issues of appropriate use of different modalities such as visual, symbolic and enactive. These tools also encourage invention of new pedagogical structures such as the cooperative problem bulletin board.
