E-Learning: A Study on Secondary Students' Attitudes towards Online Web Assisted Learning
Paris, Paul G.
International Education Journal, v5 n1 p98-112 2004
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) at secondary schools has made positive inroads into learning. The use of online e-learning by members of educational communities is increasing. It is suggested that educators identify and address individuals' attitudes so that anxieties can be kept to a minimum while at the same time allowing learning to progress and be cultivated in a positive manner. This research study examined the affective, behavioural and cognitive attitudes of 52 Year 10 students from an Adelaide Public Secondary School towards a specific type of online e-learning, that of Online Web-Assisted Learning (OWAL). Data were collected to examine differences in attitudes between paper assisted learning and OWAL, of differences in attitudes towards OWAL between males and females, the correlation between Internet use and positive OWAL attitudes, and the "publishing elements" that students find most appealing in OWAL. (Contains 15 tables and 2 figures.)
