Abstract

Mississippi State University (MSU) has just finished its second full year using an in-house developed mainframe electronic mail system. The primary use of the system has been for student-to-student communications and for class administration. A small number of instructors use the system as an integral part of class administration, sending class-wide messages of announcements, clarifications, and reminders, as well as for electronic posting of class grades. Because many students actually become interested in the system and how it works, it can also serve as a basis for in-class discussion, particularly in programming classes. MSU’s system has been enthusiastically accepted by its user community. There are currently over 1,000 active users, some of whom average at least 10 E-Mail sessions a day. While much of the system’s use is for non-official, unimportant business, its use as a teaching and administrative tool have made it invaluable.
