Satellite Home Tutorials vs. Satellite Classroom Tutorials.
Beyth-Marom, Ruth; Yafe, Edna; Privman, Meira; Harpaz, Hamutal Razy
In this study, students who registered for a course at the Open University of Israel could choose the tutorial method they preferred: group face-to-face tutorials with a local tutor in their residential vicinity; tutorials via satellite broadcasting to groups of students around the country; or getting the same satellite tutorial at home on the computer screen. The three groups of students differed in percentages of males and females, age, computer experience, English knowledge, and number of University credits. Satellite classroom tutorials were the least preferred method regarding most of the dimensions about which students were questioned. Satellite home tutorials were preferable because they allow higher concentration, ease of summarizing, more enjoyment, and a higher degree of comprehension of the material. The paper concludes with a number of pedagogical and methodological implications regarding research on educational technologies. (Author/AEF)
