Student Perception: Phase One to Building a Center for Media Training and Research
Messier, William P.
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v12 n1 p21-31 2003
This article is a report on the findings of a study (phase one) conducted at Zayed University in the United Arab Emirates about making some important decisions regarding its instructional technology and the effects it will have on its students. The study was conducted to determine student perceptions about using more than one type of computer. A questionnaire was designed to find out about student attitudes toward using multiple operating systems. The survey was developed to obtain baseline data on the present use of technology as well as suggestions for, and the obstacles to, the creation of a Center for Media Training and Research at Zayed University. The data collected provided positive information towards the implementation of the Center for Media Training and Research. Findings indicate that new technology usage among students is not a problem with proper administrative implementation. Some discussion about the use of student data and its impact on the future use of instructional technology at Zayed University conclude the article. (Contains 2 tables.)
