Learning Orientations in University Web-Based Courses.
Jones, Edward R.; Martinez, Margaret
This paper examines the research question of whether the distribution of learning orientations among university students enrolling in World Wide Web-based courses differs from those in the general student population. Using the Learning Orientation Questionnaire (LOQ), statistically significant differences in learning orientations were found between science students in a Web-based course and those in a more traditional classroom stetting. The implications of this finding on sample bias in educational research studies of Web-based courses and on the instructional design of university Web-based courses are discussed. General instructional design considerations for the three major learning orientations (conforming, performing, and transforming) are described. (Contains 13 references.) (MES)
