Evaluation of Regular Classroom Lectures Distributed by CCTV to Campus and Dormitory Classrooms. Final Report.
Davis, Robert H.; Johnson, F. Craig
Television courses presented live to students in the classroom and simultaneously remitted by closed circuit television (CCTV) to dormitory and campus classrooms were compared for their effects on student performance and attitudes. The two types of courses had no significant effects on the overall distribution of grades. Over 6,000 students participating in the eight courses answered a questionnaire, and 136 students randomly selected from the courses were given a structured interview to determine the effects on their attitudes toward CCTV of viewing situation, course, subject matter, and depersonalization in the university. (The 10 course lecturers were also interviewed to determine their attitudes toward CCTV.) Questions dealing with interest and stimulation elicited no significant differences between students in live and television classes, but the students in television classes wanted more opportunity for contact with the lecturer. The majority of students preferred their own viewing condition, but would be willing to take television courses under certain conditions. Interview and questionnaire materials are included. (BB)
