Interpersonal Computing and Technology Journal


The Interpersonal Computing and Technology Journal (IPCT-J) was one of the first scholarly, peer-reviewed journals. It was published two/four times a year by the Center for Teaching and Technology, Academic Computer Center, Georgetown University, Washington, DC from 1993-1999.

The journal’s focus was on computer-mediated communication, and the pedagogical issues surrounding the use of computers and technology in educational settings.  Emphasis was placed on the educational values of computer-mediated communication and not on the technologies involved.  For this reason we believe it important to bring these early articles to you: while technologies may have changed in the intervening years – the realities of teaching and learning through medicated communications have not.

Copyright of individual articles in this publication is retained by the individual authors. Copyright of the compilation at this site is held by AECT. Any republication should state that the article was first published in IPCT-J.

The owners of this site, Dr. Zane Berge and Dr. Mauri Collins were involved with IPCT-J from its inception: Dr. Berge was the Director of the Center for Teaching and Technology at Georgetown University, and Dr. Mauri Collins was the managing editor.
