Not only does the Internet permit faster feedback on compositions from a wider audience, but it also enables students to work collaboratively with greater ease. In fact, programs such as the New Jersey Institute of Technology's Virtual Classroom (1995) and multi-user domain programs discussed later in this article are especially designed to facilitate collaborative networking. Students using networks can copy and distribute their compositions to others in microseconds, making real-time global networking feasible.
