A Comparison of the Effectiveness of Face-to-Face and Remote Teaching in Communicating Educational Information to Adults. Extension Study 4.
Blackwood, Helen; Trent, Curtis
Research studied the effectiveness of class lecture as compared to telelecture, and the association between amount learned and the personal and situational factors of age, level of education, time of day, and attitude. Pretests and posttests collected level of knowledge and personal information from 71 women during a short course on Money Management given by University Extension Specialists in Reno County. The sample was randomly divided into an experimental and control group. It was found that no significant difference in amount of learning existed. Several tendencies, not statistically significant, were revealed: age was negatively associated with amount learned; level of education was positively associated with pre and posttest scores; scores were higher in the afternoon than morning, although attitudes were higher in the morning. It was concluded that either teaching technique could be used resulting in similar amounts of learning. Implications for extension workers and use of remote teaching techniques are included. (pt)
