Student Perception of On-line Lectures with a Blended Learning Environment
Buchanan, W. (2011, ). Student Perception of On-line Lectures with a Blended Learning Environment. Paper presented at Edinburgh Napier University Staff Conference, Craiglockhart.
Educational institutions are increasingly moving towards enhancing learning through the use of integrated information technology. Blended, or augmented, learning, aims to support the traditional learning environment – where the instructor blends online learning with the traditional face-to-face teaching. This may take the form of centrally Managed Systems (LMS), for example, or Instructor-led content such as online video, quizzes and activities. This paper investigates student preferences within a Computer Security and Digital Forensics module, regarding the integration of lecture using narrative-plus-PowerPoint within a traditional educational infrastructure. It thus assesses student perceptions in the usage of on-line lectures for security and digital forensics material, with a specific focus on whether students actually prefer the on-line version to the traditional lecture situation, and on how they use the on-line lecture material.
