Jones, Gary H.; Jones, Beth H.
Educational Technology & Society, v8 n2 p125-135 2005
The purpose of this study was to assess the perceived effectiveness of the CourseInfo instructional technology package implemented at a regional Midwestern university. An online survey was administered, with 971 students and 44 faculty responding. Results indicate attitudes of both faculty and students were positive--both believed that the web, and specifically Blackboard's CourseInfo, were beneficial educational tools. They felt confident in their ability to utilize both CourseInfo and the Web and considered themselves computer literate. Faculty, significantly more than students, believed both teacher-student and student-student communication was facilitated. Students, much more than faculty felt that CourseInfo had improved student learning. (Contains 6 tables.)
