Computer-Based Distance Education for Vocational Use in Southern Nevada.
Beckstrand, Scott; Barker, Philip; van Schaik, Paul
This paper discusses the results of a study that compared two different course delivery methods. One of these used the Internet exclusively for module delivery while the other used a traditional campus setting. The two delivery methods were compared in order to determine if the Internet method was as good as the traditional approach. Results and suggestions for further study are described and some of the concerns identified are discussed. The module, which prepares students to take and pass an industry-recognized certification test, is currently being offered at the Community College of Southern Nevada. (Contains 14 references.)
