Abstract

Abstract: This paper is a report on a qualitative research study conducted with participants in graduate literacy courses delivered on the web. The study compares student responses to facets of web instruction obtained on multiple-choice questions with open-ended responses. Findings from the open-ended questions demonstrate that web course participants have complex and discerning interpretations of online learning experiences. Four significant themes emerged from dat analysis: learning activities suited to web delivery, learning experiences better delivered in live sessions, the need for a balance of web and live meetings, and web instruction as a catalyst to self-directed, lifelong learning. Instructors can use this information to inform decisions about transferring and transforming learning experiences from live to online delivery format.
