The Application of Web-Based Teaching and Learning in Tertiary Institution--A Case Study in Hong Kong
Fung, Alex C. W.; Fu, Frank H. K.; Cheung, W. S.
New Horizons in Education, n51 p68-80 May 2005
The experience of a two-year project to promote the use of Web-based teaching and learning at XXX University was presented. A total of 68 courses over two semesters were included in the study. Surveys of students and teachers suggested that the quality of learning and teaching were improved. Over 80% of the students had used Web-based teaching and satisfied with its results and a majority of them would continue to use WebCT in the future. It was found that students developed a more favourable attitude toward the subjects and the teachers in the process. Teachers were delighted with the results and appreciated the support made available to them through the project team. Some even volunteered to be "mentors" for future novice teachers in this endeavour. Reservation and resistance offered by a few university administrators were noted and their concern would provide future challenges and targets for improvement. It is concluded based on the case study at XXX University, Web-enhanced/based teaching and learning is a trend that cannot be overlooked and should be seriously considered for adoption by tertiary institutions.
