      The January issue of _Computer Mediated Communication Magazine_
      contains several articles by Netoric regulars, addressing several
      topics that other Netoric participants have asked to discuss at
      Tuesday Cafes this term.  This week, we'd like to begin discussing
      some of those topics, using the various _CMC_ articles as starting
      points for the discussion.  We'll begin with the article "MUDs in
      Education: New Environments, New Pedagogies," which you can read
      on the web at:

      That article discusses the problems of thinking of educational
      MUDs in terms of traditional education and employing traditional
      pedagogical methods to incorporate MUDs into the classroom, thereby
      negating the unique learning experiences MUDs can offer.  Of course,
      we hope this discussion can be extended to other internet resources
      we might use in our classes.

      If you don't have web access, write to Tari, address below, to have
      the article e-mailed to you.  (Oh, and by all means show up even if
      you don't have time to read the article--this discussion is certainly
      bigger than just one article!)

      See you Tuesday!
