Abstract or Summary
  • In spite of wide spread adoption of the internet technology in teaching and learning, little research exists on the use and the effect of web incorporation in teaching and learning. Immediate clarification of how, when, and for whom the web integration in education is beneficial is needed. This qualitative study explored the dynamics and characteristics of web incorporation in a large introductory computer programming course at college level. Characteristics that might influence web integration and its usefulness to students and the instructor were identified. The instructor of the course and six volunteer students were studied in regards to their approaches and beliefs towards web use in teaching and learning. Students' approaches to using available resources for learning such as class interaction, office hours, practice and assignment programs, homework assignments, online information, and textbook were investigated. The instructor's utilization of the resources for teaching were also investigated and compared to students' approaches. Students' achievement was considered as a measure of success in the learning activities and was used in differentiating successful and less successful students' approach towards use of the resources. The results of the study suggest a direct association between use of electronic information in a dynamic form via the web and students' success in the course. Results also indicate a direct association between the instructor's skills and goals in utilization of the web in teaching and the students' use of the web resource for learning. Recommendation for future studies in investigation of the identified associations and examination of possible causal relationships between the identified characteristics of web utilization and use of the web capabilities for teaching and learning in regard to instructor and student outcomes are provided.
