(Collaborative On-Line Studio, Version 2)
2CoOL Studio is our second effort in this area and was used in fall 1999 to support discussion and interaction a 180-student freshman lecture class. The site is being used again in spring 2000 to support these same freshmen in their first design studio classes.
- Online discussions and team research are designed to help students develop systematic processes for researching design problems.
- Online debates about various issues in design are held to encourage students to think critically about the roles and responsibilities of the designer in society.
- The interface is design to support community-building and different forms of interaction among students.
