Enhancing a Face-to-Face Course with Online Lectures: Instructional and Pedagogical Issues.
Since 1999, and as part of an Ameritech grant, the author has systematically investigated use of streaming media to enhance face-to-face classes. Technology invites experimentation but raises questions about such things as student acceptance, student use, academic performance, and what to do with class time when lectures are put online. Students appear to easily master the technology, and today software is available to help the instructor with the task. The harder issues to deal with relate to instructional and pedagogical issues. For technology to be used to its full advantage, it should be used to create an active learning environment. Specific topics covered in the paper include: using courseware to put lectures online; students' confidence with use of courseware; an approach for using Internet-based educational technology to enhance teaching; communication theory and Internet-based instructional technology; a classification of educational media by type of interaction and timing of the message; and gaining face time by streaming lectures.
