There are many changes happening in educational institutions as technology is used more frequently to disseminate information and encourage learning outside of a face-to-face setting. With the rapid advance and development of technological instructional tools, learners, instructors and the institutions alike are entering a new phase within the teaching-learning transaction.
The study analyses the experiences of seven graduate female students in a course that introduced computer mediated conferencing as a learning tool. The issues that face female learners in adapting to this learning environment as an adjunct to a face-to-face setting are reviewed in the context of gender issues in the learning environment. Implications for learners and instructors alike are given to ensure full participation by all learners in the educational setting.
