Learning Styles and Student Attitudes Toward Various Aspects of Network-Based Instruction
MetadataShow full item record
In order to determine student attitudes toward various aspects of network-based instruction 234 individuals voluntarily participated in research to ascertain their tendencies that will likely facilitate, or interfere with, interacting and learning from this innovative technology. Partici- pants were requested to respond anonymously to 60 items of a survey, designed to assess their attitudes toward distinct facets of network-based instruction, as well as two separate forms developed to ascertain their learning and cognitive styles. Student responses to survey items, and measures of learning and cognitive styles, were analyzed using a number of multivari- ate and univariate statistical techniques. Students with assimilating and accommodating learning styles demonstrated signi®cantly more agreeable attitudes toward varied aspects of network-based instruction than students with converging and diverging learning styles. These ®ndings partially supported the general hypothesis. Recommendations are made to appro- priate sponsors, academic administrators, faculty members, and instructional developers, interested in realizing on-line learning.
