The Effectiveness of Web-Based Instruction: A Case Study
Joint Meeting of the Central States Communication Association and the Southern States Communication Association,
A case study compared web-based and classroom instruction. Subjects, 40 students enrolled in a Communication Technology and Change class, were divided by volunteers into an Internet section (16 students) and a regular classroom section (24 students.) Results indicated that in all cases the classroom section performed slightly better than the Internet section, but in no case did the differences achieve statistical significance. Findings suggest that web-based instruction is as effective as classroom instruction as far as grades are concerned, but if classroom discussion is important to learning then students did not receive the same quality of instruction. Suggestions for future web-based courses are included. (Contains 14 references and 3 tables of data; two appendixes presenting the Internet and computer use questionnaire and the distance learning response questionnaire are attached.) (SC)
