A Case Study in the Benefits and Costs of a joint Industry/University Designed Program Featuring Integrated Delivery Methods


...there was little variation among final grades for students enrolled in the three modes (studio site, videoconferencing sites, and videotape sites)... no significant performance difference is noted between those who took the course on campus or at a distance, and for the distance learners, course delivery mode did not make a difference . Yet it was surprising to note that those who watched by videotape rated the course considerably higher (4.57) than those who participated live and interactively by videoconfereince (3.77). To the statement 'The technologies used made me uncomfortable,' the group that disagreed the most (indicating the highest comfort level ) were those using videotape, followed closely by the campus group.
