Foundations for Creative Effective Two-Way Audio/Video Distance Education Environments: Issues of Self-Efficacy.
Reinhart, Julie; Schneider, Paul
This study seeks to determine the relationship between students' perceptions of two-way audio/video distance classrooms and their perceptions of self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is defined as self-assessment of one's ability to be successful in this audio/video classroom situation. In addition, this study seeks to determine the relationship between students' perceptions of two-way audio/video distance classrooms and their satisfaction with the distance learning experience. Students (n=222) in two- way audio-video classes completed inventories that measured their perceptions of self-efficacy, satisfaction with learning in the distance environment, and perceptions of the key elements in the learning environment. Data collected for each measure were correlated to determine the relationship among these factors. Results of the analysis were mixed. Findings appear to indicate that either the students do not discriminate among these concepts or that these factors are very tightly integrated in this type of environment. Implications and interpretations of these findings, as well as suggestions for future research are explored. (Contains 1 table and 22 references.) (SLD)
