A Framework for Web-based Education Systems Supporting Interdisciplinary Design Collaboration

KARAKAYA, Ahmet Fatih
Web-based educational systems are promising applications to enhance design education. Although the advantages of such systems have been discussed in the literature extensively, few studies in the field have used them for teaching interdisciplinary design collaboration. In order to alleviate this problem, a web-based interdisciplinary building design studio was designed and implemented. Considering the lack of systematic approaches in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in studios, this paper offers a framework for analysing, understanding and exploiting web-based studios in terms of aim, content, method and management in the light of the case study.
