Scope and method of study. The purpose of this study was to describe Internet learners' perceptions through the Blackboard learning process in the College of Education at Oklahoma State University. This study employed a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate learners' perceptions among gender, age, marital status, educational level, family considerations, job responsibilities, satisfaction, modes of assessment, learners' autonomy, timescales for learning, knowledge and accessibility, attitudes and prior computer proficiency, course design, convenience, communication and interaction. A survey entitled, “Internet Learner's Perception Questionnaire”, was distributed to the targeted subjects by emails for collecting data. The survey was sent to 71 subjects from 3 courses; 48 of the subjects returned the completed questionnaires that were used to generate the findings and conclusions of this study. Measures of central tendency and variability, and cross-tabulations were applied to illustrate and describe the results.
