This paper describes the implementation of a role-play
simulation in two different modes: first using only traditional
methods and again using computer-mediated-communication
(CMC). The paper raises problems identified with the first
implementation and outlines how the use addressed some of
these issues. It also discusses the findings of an evaluation
conducted during the second implementation.

of the Personal Reflections of Student Participants in a Role-Play
Simulation. Unpublished manuscript.
This paper describes in detail the simulation design,
including the technology component facilitated by Simulation
Builder. The paper also discusses the results of the analysis
of the personal reflections of students participating in
the activity in 2001. The analysis used inductive methods
to identify theoretical concepts to describe the concepts
