This thesis investigates the perceptions of foreign language students and teachers about the use and pedagogical value of a CACD (Computer Assisted Classroom Discussion) classroom that uses Daedalus Interchange. Specifically, I would like to find out whether students participating in courses that use such programs have definite ideas about what they are learning. Further, do their ideas correspond to those of teacher-users? The answers to these questions should enable me to gain insight into how styles of lesson plans, approaches [to] subject matter, or other variables may correspond to teacher and student perceptions about what a class that uses this technology is learning.
