Distance Learning Receptivity: Are They Ready yet?
Zhang, Yixin
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v6 n1 p45-53 2005
The purpose of this study was to investigate distance learning variables and their possible contributions to successful distance learning receptivity. The variables used in this study included gender, age, computer experience, learning style, and students taking an educational technology (EDTC) course and students taking a statistics (non-EDTC) course. Failing to reject the first 4 null hypotheses indicated that gender, age, computer experience and learning style were not contributing factors in distance learning receptivity. This study revealed that those taking EDTC courses showed higher distance learning receptivity than did non-EDTC students. The results suggest that technology orientation is a necessity in increasing students' distance learning receptivity. (Contains 3 tables.)
