Abstract

3-dimensional online learning environments can provide a means for users with limited connectivity to the Internet to participate as fully as their broadband-enabled peers in collaborative experiences, information sharing and feedback. Nearly 90% of the universities in the USA that support distributed learning programmes use web-based course delivery methods. Directors of these programmes state that web-based delivery allows them to handle the wide range of connectivity among student populations. 3-Dimensional online learning environments can increase online course interaction and feedback beyond current web-based document delivery in a cost effective and scaleable manner. This article examines attitudes to information technology of students in a 3-dimensional online learning environment versus those involved in face-to-face classroom instruction at the University of North Texas. We were interested in looking to see how the benefits of immersion, interaction and feedback provided by the 3-dimensional online learning environment would impact on the students' attitudes to information technology for an established traditional course.
