Discussions are threaded, as with web forums and BBSs, though posts are stored on the server sequentially. One notable difference between a BBS or web forum and Usenet is the absence of a central server and dedicated administrator.Usenet is distributed among a large, constantly changing conglomeration of servers that store and forward messages to one another in so-called news feeds.Arrows between servers indicate newsgroup group exchanges (feeds).Arrows between clients and servers indicate that a user is subscribed to a certain group and reads or submits articles.) is a worldwide distributed discussion system available on computers.Three different learning environment were compared within the scope of the study.Students in Study Group I completed the experimental process using the podcasts supported with reflective thinking activities whilst students in Study Group II completed the process using podcasts which were not supported with reflective thinking activities and students in Study Group III completed the experimental process using web-based videos.over a decade before the World Wide Web was developed and the general public received access to the Internet, making it one of the oldest computer network communications systems still in widespread use.
Experimental design with pretest-posttest control group was used in the study.
For instance, and sci.physics are within the sci.* hierarchy, for science.
Or, talk.origins and talk.atheism are in the talk.* hierarchy.
Based on the results of qualitative data analysis, recommendations were made on how to use reflective thinking activities in e-learning environment designs and on how to utilize podcast technology.
