ITFORUM is an electronic listserv, sponsored by the Department of Instructional Technology at The University of Georgia, where people from around the world discuss theories, research, new paradigms, and practices in the field of Instructional Technology. It is a little different from most listservs in that from time to time, leaders in the field are invited to write a short paper or essay that is posted on the website and subsequently discussed. This guest discussant remains available electronically on the list for a period of one week to discuss, debate, or answer questions from subscribers.
