"Student Evaluation of an Experimental Course Conducted Via Conference Telephone."
Gold, Ben K.
This study summarizes student responses to an evaluation questionnaire and some performance statistics for a special "conference telephone" class in organization and management theory offered by Los Angeles City College to employees of the Pacific Telephone Company. The conference telephone setup permitted the students to take the class at their employment location. The instructor rotated his appearances among the five offices participating in the program. A total of 145 students enrolled in the nine sections of the course. It was found that: (1) 92% received a grade of A, B, or C; (2) over 3/4 were females and nearly 80% were in non-management positions; (3) there were no significant differences in performance between noon and evening classes, between males and females, and between management and non-management personnel; and (4) student response to the program (especially to the instructor) was highly favorable. Many suggestions for future course offerings of this type were offered. (Author/KM)
