Computer Use in Outreach Courses.
Cook, John E.
The data for this paper are drawn from a study of faculty perceptions about courses that are taught in locations away from a college campus, often called outreach, such as military installations, community centers, or business locations. Computer use in such settings presents difficulties in providing logistical support. Faculty were asked about computer availability and whether this affected student learning. Computer use in outreach courses, about 28%, is lower than a conservative predicted rate of 33%. The availability of computers apparently does not affect the faculty perception of student learning. The trend of the data does indicate a substantial increase in the use of computers in outreach courses. (3 references) (Author/DB)
