Abstract

The purpose of this study is to measure learners’ perceptions toward the Web-based distance learning activities/assignments portion of a hybrid program. These activities and assignments were designed based on a set of appropriate instructional parameters and objectives. By measuring learners’ perceptions, this study attempts to find whether these activities/assignments promote learning. This study gives attention to the variables of age, gender, and experience with the Internet to find whether these variables are significant factors in learners’ perceptions toward the Web-based distance learning activities/assignments portion of the hybrid program. A ten-item Likert-type instrument was designed based on the instructional parameters and objectives. The instrument collects information about the learners’ perceptions of Web-based distance learning activities and assignments portion of the hybrid program. The subjects of this study were 106 students who were enrolled in an undergraduate hybrid program in management designed for working adults. In addition to descriptive analyses, three separate Analyses of Variance (one-way ANOVA) were conducted to answer the research questions in this study. Results indicated that overall students gravely perceived that the Web-based distance learning activities/assignments portion of their hybrid program promoted learning. Age and gender were not significant factors. However, there was a significant difference among levels of learners’ experience with the Internet and their perceptions toward the Web-based distance learning activities/assignments portion of the hybrid program. Subjects who had more experience with the Internet indicated significantly higher perceptions toward the Web-based distance learning activities/assignments portion of the hybrid program. The findings are discussed and recommendations are made based on the results of this study.
