Perceiving the Useful, Enjoyable and Effective: A Case Study of the E-Learning Experience of Tertiary Students in Singapore
Fang, Linda
Educational Media International, v44 n3 p237-253 Sep 2007
This article discusses a study conducted at one of the polytechnics in Singapore. Its purpose was to explore how the cultural characteristics of Singapore students influenced and shaped their e-learning experience in a blended-learning program. The study employed a range of methods to collect rich qualitative data, including individual and group interviews, and observations of their online interactions. The findings suggest that the students' culture at the national, ethnic and cyber levels could have influenced what they considered useful, enjoyable and effective. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
