Abstract

This study shares the results of an independent mixed-method, effectiveness research study examining the impact of a commonly used digital course management and learning tool in postsecondary psychology courses. This study compared the posttest results of students in courses using the digital learning tool to those results of students in courses that were using the same books but not using the digital learning tool. Second, we conducted a qualitative study that included surveys of instructors and students, interviews of instructors and students, and a student focus group. Teacher and student feedback provided insight into the most effective features and uses of the online learning tool. Students who used the online learning tool showed higher psychology assessment scores than students who did not use the online learning tool.
