TLRPTIL Volume 48, Number 6, ISSN 8756-3894


Online instruction is quickly becoming a trend in university classroom instruction. Many of these classes are established without proper input from students. The purpose of this study was to compare student attitudes and perceptions toward in class and/or online course instruction. This study took place in a university setting in the southeastern United States. The two classes involved in the study were conducted using a traditional method of lecture for the first half of the class, and using online ("Blackboard") for the instructor to post lecture notes and supplemental materials for the students during the second half. During the course of the semester, written student comments regarding course presentation were collected. Comments typically provided support for internet instruction. Several students continued to favor and participate in both modes of instruction. (Contains 2 tables.)
