Redesigning a Course Using an Analysis of Technical Problems Encountered in an Online Technology Training Course.
Abbitt, Jason T.; Klett, Mitchell D.; Graves, Scott M.
This study sought to analyze the technical problems encountered by students in a technology training course for educators. The results of the study then informed the redesign of the course for its next offering. The study collected data by both qualitative and quantitative means with the overall purpose of determining in which course modules the students encountered the most technical problems. Further data collected from the survey following the course indicated that occurrence of technical problems did not negatively impact the students' rating of the value of each module or the perceptions of the value of the course.
