The Students' Perspectives of Online Training at Kuwait University
Safar, Ammar H.
College Student Journal, v46 n2 p436-458 Jun 2012
Computers, the Internet, smartphones, and telecommunication technologies have all changed the way we live--how we think, socialize, entertain, work, teach, learn, and train as well. One of the modern ICT trends of organizations involve the integration of e-learning, in general, and online training systems, in particular, as new methods for delivering training programs/courses online. This longitudinal study aimed to scrutinize and assess the reaction-based satisfaction level, indeed the first level of Kirkpatrick's classic 4-level evaluation research model, of Kuwait University's (KU's) students regarding the online training system service provided by KU to its faculty, students, and employees alike. A total of 700 undergraduate students from the College of Education (COE) at KU participated in this study. Even though the majority of the participants, 97.4 percent, were not aware about the online training system service. However, the findings demonstrate that the reaction-based satisfaction level of KU's students is significantly high. Students' feelings, perceptions, and attitudes toward e-training courses are significantly encouraging. KU's students consider the contents/materials provided in the online training courses as being pertinent and useful to their work/study. They were satisfied with what they learn using the online training system. The majority of the participants, about 95 percent, asserted that they are eager to take more training courses offered online. (Contains 10 tables.)
