Abstract

The goals of this study are to determine student expectations of an online course emphasizing collaborative learning, as well as to examine how students adjust their expectations. The participants of this study include 2 American students (one male and one female) and 2 international students (one male and one female). All of them are graduate students enrolled in a graduate Web-based course on Instructional Technology Planning and Management (ITPM 2003). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with all participants who were asked to reflect on their expectations before taking the course and reveal their present expectations. The data were coded and analyzed according to grounded theory. The data were categorized and grouped into three phases: expectations before taking the course, experiences in the course, and expectations after having experience in the course.
