Evaluation of Electronic Blackboard Enhancement of a Graduate Course in School Counseling.
Klecker, Beverly M.
This study explored the effectiveness of using Blackboard, an online software program, to enhance a graduate course in school counseling. Research questions were: (1) does Blackboard enhancement facilitate student learning? and (2) is there a difference in student response to Blackboard by class site (off-campus v. on-campus). Participants were 32 graduate students in 2 sections enrolled in a required school counseling course in a masters in counseling program. Materials made available through Blackboard were: syllabus, counselor standards, professional information, lecture notes, and practice tests. Effectiveness measures were usage records from Blackboard, end-of-course student evaluations, and instructors evaluations. Students in both sections agreed that Blackboard enhancement increased their learning. There was no difference in students ratings of satisfaction with Blackboard by class site. An appendix contains an annotated list of Web sites for the class. (SLD)
