Havice, Pamela A.; Davis, Taurean T.; Foxx, Kerry W.; Havice, William L.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v11 n1 p53-58 2010
The digital revolution has ushered in a generation shaped by the integration of emerging communication technology into everyday life, including today's traditional-aged college students. While research on how this generation utilizes technology is prevalent, research and reflection on the effective integration of technology into the learning environment is still sparse. This study attempts to fill that gap by blending distance and distributed learning research into analyzing how a distributed learning environment affects the satisfaction and engagement of traditional, face-to-face undergraduate students enrolled in a research project course.
