Abstract

This qualitative study reports on student and professor perceptions of the usefulness of a course Web site in a graduate psychology course that used BlackboardTM. The professor and students in this study cited several benefits of supplementing classroom instruction with Blackboard TM in higher education that reinforce the findings of prior research on the use of course Web sites in on-campus courses. Based on the data collected from interviews with all 14 students and the professor, recommendations are made for the use of course Web sites by faculty for communication, administration, and assessment to enhance learning and teaching in higher education.
