The Development and Evaluation of the Internet Delivery of the Course "Task Analysis."
Schlough, Steve; Bhuripanyo, Suwathana
"Task Analysis" is a required course in the Communication, Education, and Training Department at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. A research study was designed to assess the effectiveness of a World Wide Web-based instruction program in the delivery of task analysis content. The program was presented and delivered on the Internet during a period of eight weeks in the summer of 1997. All students in the class were asked to complete the evaluation form; a total of 22 evaluations were returned. Respondents rated several statements using a 5-point Likert scale. In response to the question of whether they would prefer to take the course a second time in the classroom or on the Internet, 77% indicated they would prefer the classroom. In addition to the data gathered through this study, graduate students enrolled in the course performed an analysis of the Web delivery system that addressed strengths and weaknesses of the course and resulted in several recommendations. Findings indicated that this method is a viable way to deliver teacher education instruction to students at remote locations. The potential for Internet delivery of courses should continue to grow as more people have Internet connections and become more proficient in the use of the Internet. (AEF)
