Abstract

This research aims to identify, classify, and quantify the evolving use of web pedagogies on course websites, by lecturers in a traditional university. The main research questions are: (a) For what purposes and to what extent do lecturers integrate the Internet in their courses (e.g., content delivery, learning activities and course management)? And (b) to what extent do lecturers realize the Web's pedagogical potential in terms of learning flexibility, representational means, and interaction? To asses this current state, a course website characterization scheme was developed and implemented to a random sample of 202 academic websites from all academic units of Tel-Aviv University in the year 2002/2003. Results suggest that most lecturers conceived course websites as content providers rather than communication facilitators. They realized only to a limited extent the huge pedagogical potential for flexibility and augmentation of academic instruction.
