An Exploratory Study of Adoption of Course Management Software and Accompanying Instructional Changes by Faculty in the Liberal Arts and Sciences
Yohon, Teresa; Zimmerman, Don; Keeler, Leslie
Electronic Journal of e-Learning, v2 n2 p313-320 2004
The study investigated liberal arts and science faculty's (1) overall adoption of WebCT, a course management software, (2) use of different WebCT functions, (3) perceptions of technology's impact on teaching, and (4) demographic factors that might explain the differences between WebCT adopters and non-adopters. Only 37% of respondents reported using WebCT. The most frequently used WebCT tools were the content and syllabus tools, grade book, and e-mail. WebCT adopters versus non-adopters indicated that technology saved them time on daily tasks and enabled them to improve their teaching. No significant differences of demographics factors were found.
