Abstract

This study examined the relationship between computer self-efficacy and use of an online social gathering forum for students enrolled in a "traditional" teacher preparation program. Participants were 174 students enrolled in a college located in Tampa Bay, Florida. The findings from this study suggest that the use of the forum was positively associated with student feelings of connectedness and participant computer self-efficacy (measured using Cassidy & Eachus' 2002 Computer User Self-Efficacy scale). The findings and implications from this research and potential directions for future work are discussed.
