Distance Education at UAS: A Case Study
Schrum, Lynne; Ohler, Jason
Journal of Distance Education, v20 n1 p60-83 2005
Increased pressure on the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) to become more involved in distance education compelled UAS to commission a study of the perceptions, problems, and opportunities in the area of distance education as seen by three distinct groups in the university community: students, faculty, and staff (including administrators). The researchers used qualitative methods to gather data from which questionnaires were derived. The results suggest that all three groups see lack of leadership and coordination in distance education as the primary obstacle to improving and expanding offerings. Recommendations propose practices that support the needs of each group and the program in general. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
