Try to identify what are the pedagogical tools that have been used by the professor, and which new tools can be incorporated by his/her teaching practices?

Consider that some students might not have a computer, and that they might be encountering some time restrictions to use dorms or labís computers: should the material be published only online, or in this transition situation should the professor also offers hard copy of the material. Discuss this question with the professor.

Use the table Motivations: How to make professor realize the potentials and limits of information technology in improving learning to give examples of resources and tools that can be applied to the course web site.
