Student Responses to Collaborating and Learning in a Web-based Environment


Journal of Computer Assisted Learning Volume 17, Number 1, ISSN 1365-2729 Publisher: Wiley


Describes a study which explored undergraduate students' reactions to a Web-based environment supporting problem-based learning. Findings revealed that while the majority of students saw value to be gained from learning in a student-centered, collaborative setting, many expressed preference for learning in the more conventional teacher-directed forms. Results did not reveal any discernible development of problem-solving skills. (AEF)
