A Comparison of Student Ratings in Traditional and Interactive Television Courses
McCall, Morgan; Dunham, Mardis; Lyons, Robert
Educational Research Quarterly, v37 n2 p61-80 Dec 2013
Although interactive television (ITV) allows colleges and universities to reach a wider audience, little research has been conducted exploring the effectiveness of the courses as perceived by students. This study compared student ratings of teacher effectiveness between 331 traditional courses and 125 ITV courses. The data included 456 graduate level courses over six contiguous semesters. Results clearly favored the traditional courses, followed by perceived effectiveness of the instructor at the ITV sending site and the ratings at the ITV receiving site. Implications for the use of ITV are discussed.
