Abstract

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Distance Apprenticeship Training and Education (NAIT DATE) uses videoconference technology to seek to reverse the traditional model of having apprentices temporarily move to the location of the technical institution or college for theory courses by having the student attend that part of their apprenticeship course in their home community. In NAIT DATE, students are located singly or in small groups throughout the province, while the instructor is located at the NAIT main campus. This part of the evaluation found that there was a higher rate of attrition among NAIT DATE students than among traditional students, but that there was no difference in final exam scores between the two groups. NAIT DATE students spent significantly less than did traditional students.
