Implications of Mediated Instruction to Remote Learning in Mathematics.
Matthews-Lopez, Joy L.; Lopez-Permouth, Sergio R.; Keck, David
Mediated learning utilizes multimedia-based instructional modules to provide students with individualized access to information in alignment with their individual learning styles (Kinser, Morris, & Hewitt). In contrast with traditional pedagogy, the mission of the instructor in a mediated learning environment is to facilitate learning rather than to deliver information through lecturing. This fundamental difference in the role of the instructor in a mediated environment may set the stage to offer remedial mathematics courses via a remote learning model. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility of converting a specific remedial-level college math course from a traditional classroom-delivery model to a remote learning mode when learning was supported by mediated instruction. A commercially prepared mediated-learning system that featured Web-based classroom management with a CD-ROM based instructional delivery platform was used for this project. Appended are related materials from study including course evaluation forms and basic skills test. (Author/YDS)
