Students' Use of E-Mail in an Undergraduate Public Relations Course.
Kelleher, Tom; Dodd, Julie E.
A study examined the use of e-mail between the students in an introductory public relations class and their instructor. E-mail use was parallel to the use of face-to-face communication, with students reporting that they used office time and e-mail primarily to ask questions about quizzes, tests, and assignments. Older students and students further along in school were less likely to use e-mail to contact their parents but reported greater enjoyment of and learning from e-mail contact with the instructor. (Contains 20 references and 5 tables of data; appendixes contain an e-mail correspondence log and verbatim selected answers written in the space provided under the survey's "other" option.)
