Perceptions of Graduate Students on the Use of Web-Based Instruction in Special Education Personnel Preparation
Korir Bore, Julie C.
Teacher Education and Special Education, v31 n1 p1-11 Win 2008
This study examined the perceptions of 88 graduate students on the use of Web-based instruction in preparing special education personnel. Following the collection of data using surveys, 6 participants were randomly selected from the original sample and interviewed. Findings supported Web-based instruction as a convenient way for students to pursue their education. Furthermore, findings indicated that Web-based courses with increased structure and organization resulted in improved learning outcomes. Greater opportunities for learner and instructor interaction in Web-based courses increased the probability of acquiring anticipated learning goals and objectives. Finally, technological problems and a lack of user-friendly technology jeopardize the effectiveness of Web-based instruction. (Contains 3 tables.)
