Welcome to the WebGuide site!
WebGuide is a web-based application to support collaborative knowledge building. It explores the use of perspectives and negotiation.
WebGuide was designed, implemented and tested by Gerry Stahl and colleagues at the University of Colorado. In 1998/99, WebGuide was piloted with middle school students at the Logan School for Creative Learning in Denver. In Spring '99 it was used in an advanced graduate seminar on "Readings in Cognitive Science," and in Fall '00 in an advanced interdisciplinary graduate seminar on "Perspectives in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning."
