Abstract

This study investigated factors that influence students’ decision-making processes in selecting a classroom or online course, student technology skills and experience, and concerns students have about Internet integration. Students completed a survey questionnaire and web-based pretests and posttests. A Likert scale instrument was completed by students in both a control group and an experimental group. Independent two-sample t-tests and an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), using the initial score as the covariate, were conducted. Level of significance (alpha) was set at .05 to achieve statistical significance for all analyses. Both groups in this study were full-time, on-campus students with access to the same technology resources. Findings reveal that students’ perceptions and experiences were quite similar.
