Classroom Communication Apprehension and Distance Education.
Marshall, Rodney
The rise of distance education classrooms in colleges and universities call for attention to the difference in communicative strategies need from a regular classroom. This study examined the concept of classroom communication apprehension (CCA) and the distance classroom. Ninety-two students from three different classes participated in this study. The results indicated that as the fear of technology confronted in the distance class rose, so did the apprehension to communicate in the class. But as the student experienced a positive feeling with the technology, his/her apprehension to speak in class was less. Suggestions are presented along with limitations. Finally, a plea was made to encourage the research in this new area--the distance classroom. Contains 34 references. Appendixes contain data and the survey instrument. (Author/RS)
