Descriptive analysis
Attitude Toward Various Learning Environments. A simple descriptive analysis
indicated that students were least interested in large-size class environment (M = 3.24,
SD = .97) while they showed about the same amount of interest in small-size class (M =
3.83, SD = .97), TV (M = 3.8, SD = 1.08) and the Internet (M = 3.71, SD = 1.11). Male
students and female students indicated a similar amount of interest in the traditional face-
to-face classroom environment regardless of the class size, while male students showed a
slightly higher interest in technologically-mediated learning environments although the
differences were not significant.
Extra class Communication. The data indicated that students are more likely to
use email (M = 3.47, SD = 1.02) compared to before/after class opportunities (M = 2.68,
SD = .99) or office hours (M = 2.60, SD = 1.10).
Especially, it is interesting to note that
over 50% of students agreed that they often communicate with their instructors via email,
but less than 20% of students agreed that they often visit office hours of their instructors
or talk to their instructor(s) before or after class (Figure 1).
