Description of the Productivity and Learning Style Preferences of On- and Off-Campus Distance Education Participants at Marshall University.
Gordon, Howard R. D.
This study profiled the preferred productivity and learning style preferences of 63 off-campus and 43 on-campus distance education students enrolled at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, during Spring 1995. Using the Productivity Environmental Preference Survey (PEPS), it found no overall differences between the productivity and learning styles of the off-campus and on-campus distance education students. The study found that both on-campus and off-campus distance education students with a score of 60 or more preferred working and learning in a structured environment. On-campus students revealed a preference for learning in the afternoon, while off-campus students with a score of 40 or less preferred to learn in several ways, suggesting that a variety of learning opportunities and working patterns would be beneficial to these students. The study also discovered that off-campus and on-campus students with a score of 40 or less preferred to learn through the visual sense. (Contains 21 references.) (MDM)
