Abstract

Because of the proliferation of Web-based courses and the differences in interaction between the traditional and Web-based pedagogical platforms, a vital needs exists to assess the effectiveness of interactivity in a Web-based course. The study was a secondary analysis using data from student evaluations of Web-based courses. The primary aim was to determine which interaction variables contributed to predicting student outcomes of satisfaction and willingness to enroll in future Web-based courses. Study findings indicated that significant predictors of satisfaction and enrollment were students' perceptions of interactions with their instructor; the technology as contributing to wasted time; missing the face-to-face interactions; and distance living from campus.
