A case study of 109 graduate education students in face-to-face classes demonstrates how Web-based bulletin boards can facilitate learning and dialogue. Multiple sources of information in the form of bulletin board postings, electronic journals, reflective essays, class discussions, and interviews are analyzed from an adult learning perspective to reveal how these online experiences can influence the face-to-face classroom. A unique characteristic of this study is that the participants are teachers and teachers-in-training and are instrumental in offering their insight as education professionals. Recommendations for the use of electronic bulletin boards in traditional classes are presented.
