WebCT Can Benefit You and Your Students
Hagler, Barbara E.
Journal of Adult Education, v33 n2 p24-29 Fall 2004
Teachers should consider using web-based platform, such as WebCT, to enhance their regular face-to-face classes. WebCT and other similar systems offer many benefits to teachers and students in traditional settings. Students can benefit by being able view slides or notes they missed in the regular classroom. They can also benefit from the increased rapport established in threaded discussions and chat features. Visual learners can benefit from the extra opportunity to see and review PowerPoint presentations or other materials used in class. Teachers benefit because they can use WebCT to help them stay on schedule if they must miss a class. Teachers can easily provide self-check questions or other extra material. WebCT can also make testing and receiving assignments easier for the teacher. Teachers can learn to use WebCT effectively in a short amount of time and with little effort.
