Qualitative Evaluation of an Integrated Hypermedia Training Environment.
Nelson, Adam; Harvey, Francis
A qualitative study of an intensive week-long adult-training course taught with integrated hypermedia was conducted to document course implementation and to formulate questions and hypotheses about aspects of learning with hypermedia to guide future researchers. The hypermedia training was that of the Cities in Schools (CIS) Program Operations training, a management-training course for directors of CIS dropout-prevention programs. A qualitative observational data method was used, with observations recorded throughout the week-long training. Questions that further study may address are: (1) diversity of learners; (2) pairing learners; (3) introduction of participants; (4) objectives and evaluation; (5) course evaluation forms; (6) action plans; (7) trainer-developed activities; (8) supplemental learning materials; (9) entertaining activities and videos; (10) use of print resources; (11) hypermedia and trainer predilection; (12) time management; and (13) process checks. One table gives a taxonomy of the observation types. (Contains 14 references.) (SLD)
