Graduate Student Library Research Skills: Is Online Instruction Effective?
Shaffer, Barbara A.
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v5 n1-2 p35-55 2011
Graduate students are a significant segment in online instruction programs, yet little is known about how well they learn the necessary library research skills in this increasingly popular mode of distance learning. This pre- and posttest study and citation analysis examined learning and confidence among students in graduate education programs, comparing students studying online tutorials, delivered via a course management system, with students receiving hands-on classroom instruction. Results support online information literacy instruction as equivalent in terms of learning. Student feedback, however, showed a statistically significant difference between groups in student satisfaction, with the face-to-face group being more satisfied. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
