Literature Review--Faculty Participation in Online Distance Education: Barriers and Motivators
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration Volume 8, Number 1, ISSN 1556-3847
Distance education is a medium of teaching and learning that has grown significantly in the past 10 years as indicated by the number of higher education institutions that offer courses and/or full degree programs via distance learning. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) (1999), the number of degree-granting higher education institutions offering distance education courses increased from 33 percent in 1995 to 44 percent in 1997-98. More specifically, the use of computer-based technologies has increased from 22 percent in 1995 to 60 percent in 1997-98. The purpose of this review is to examine the overall attitude of higher education faculty toward teaching via distance education. This review also notes factors that motivate and deter faculty participation in distance education, specifically in a web-based, online format. Information regarding attitudes and specific reasons for participation in distance education can provide insight to administrators attempting to build distance education programming while supporting faculty.
