The use of intranet tools to teach an project proposal preparation course in engineering technology is discussed. The aim of the course EET 419 is for the students to develop a formal proposal for a project that will be built in their next semester. The Intranet tool incorporates cooperative learning based in First Class™ asynchronous conferencing software. The software also has a real time chat capability that students can use to communicate with their friends and has been used by instructors in other courses to hold remote office hours. The cooperative learning helps students to become more involved in the subject matter, to advance their learning through cooperation with their peers and to become familiar with teamwork.
