Student Perceptions: Printing Activities' Influence on Satisfaction with Web-Based Instruction.
Kaminski, Karen; Rezabek, Landra L.
The use of Web-based and Web-enhanced instruction is growing rapidly. There is much information and discussion surrounding the layout of content on the screen and facilitating communication yet little information is available regarding the students' perception and use of online instruction. It is known that students print information available on the Web, but not why or how this affects their satisfaction with the course. This study was designed to identify factors that influence students to print course information delivered online, to ascertain if these printing activities are related to reducing barriers, and to determine if these printing activities influence students' satisfaction for learning via the Web. Implications for the design and development of Web-based instruction are discussed. The survey instrument is included at the end of this paper. (Contains 43 references.) (AEF)
