Student Attitudes toward Web-Enhanced Instruction in an Educational Technology Course
Alghazo, Iman M.
College Student Journal, v40 n3 p620-630 Sep 2006
This study aimed at investigating students' attitudes toward Web-enhanced instruction in an educational technology course taught in the College of Education at the United Arab Emirates University. The sample of the study consisted of (66) college female students. A survey with 5 point Likert-type items and open-ended questions was used to collect the data. Results revealed that students had positive attitudes toward most aspects of Web-enhanced instruction. They identified many advantages of web-enhanced instruction such as: discussions about course content through the discussion-board, communication with the course instructor, obtaining grades from the Web, easy access to course related materials, submitting assignments through the Web, and increasing course understanding, communication with classmates. However, students identified some obstacles to using web-enhanced instruction such as: low speed of the internet, difficulties in accessing the course from home, and limited access to computer labs.
