A Comparison of Instructor Time and Effort between Traditional and Online Classrooms.
Altalib, Hasan; Dunfee, Patricia J.; Hedden, Briana L.; Lennox, Todd J.; Marenco, Rodolfo
This research study compares the time and effort involved in preparing and managing traditional versus online classrooms. A survey was used to collect data from professors with experience in teaching both formats. Previous studies showed that instructors spent more time and effort managing online versus traditional classrooms. Time and effort for this study were divided into seven hypotheses: instructor preparation for online courses will require more time and effort than instructor preparation for traditional courses; student-instructor interaction for online courses will require more time and effort than student-instructor interaction for traditional courses; course material maintenance for online courses will require more time and effort than course material maintenance for traditional courses; instructional time for online courses will require more time and effort than instructional time for traditional courses; assessment for online courses will require more time and effort than assessment for traditional courses; more time and effort will be spent on technical issues for online courses than for traditional courses; and graduate assistant aid for online courses will require more time and effort than graduate assistant aid for traditional courses. Results indicated no statistical significance of any of the hypotheses. (Contains 10 references.) (Author/SM)
