Oenology through Multimedia and Distance Learning Education.
Gebhart, Deanna M.
A study was conducted to determine whether wine experts, already trained in the traditional oenology method, would be interested in learning about wine through multimedia and distance learning. Data were gathered from 113 of the 502 members of the American Wine Society who attended a national conference in November 1995. About 58 percent were male and 43 percent female, 33 percent single and 67 percent married. The majority of those queried reportedly earn over $101,000 per year. Many of those questioned were experts, although some were novices who were very interested in wine. The Pearson's r test with a correlation at less than .05 was used to assess the correlations between the degree of wine expertise and interest in learning oenology through multimedia and distance learning. The study found that those who had previously used multimedia and distance learning (50 percent of those who filled out the questionnaires) were more likely to favor learning oenology through these means. Experts in instructional technology agreed that multimedia and distance education could be used effectively in teaching oenology. (Appendixes include the survey, a sample of wine information available on the Internet, and survey results. Contains 38 references. (KC)
