Web Based Instruction in Education
AbstractThis study examined undergraduate students’ attitudes (n=79) toward the Web Technology. Attention was given to the relationship between attitudes (anxiety, confidence, satisfaction, and usefulness) and age, gender, and college level. Age was not found to be significantly related to attitude toward Web Technology on any of the four scales. The findings revealed that female students had more positive attitudes toward the Web than male students. The results showed that there was small difference between students’ attitudes and their collegiate classification. Senior students expressed more confidence toward the Web Technology than freshman, sophomore, and junior students. Students with wider experience with Web Technology significantly expressed more Positive attitudes toward the use of Web than those who were not receiving any type of experience from their peers.
