  • Presentation that was scheduled for DEHub Summit 2011 but cancelled due to illness. More text has been added to slides to make sense without the narrative - apologies for the somewhat text-heavy result.

The free-response items showed that again, positive qualities of the project were largely qualitative andrelated to the learning process, quality of learning and engagement, while negative responses referred totime management and technical issues, and concerns regarding the content of their own posts.The correlation between these responses and those from the initial survey indicate that most of thenegative aspects are more superficial concerns that may be addressed with scaffolding and learningdesign in subsequent units. The positive responses – both the initial perceived benefits and the resultingattitudes in the final survey - indicate that the initial goal of increasing the quality of online instruction Weigh upwas achieved, and support the idea that so-called ‘digital immigrants’ can indeed benefit from theinclusion of online tools generally touted as beneficial for ‘digital natives’.The free-response items showed that again, positive qualities of the project were largely qualitative and what yourelated to the learning process, quality of learning and engagement, while negative responses referred totime management and technical issues, and concerns regarding the content of their own posts.The correlation between these responses and those from the initial survey indicate that most of the lose vs whatnegative aspects are more superficial concerns that may be addressed with scaffolding and learningdesign in subsequent units.
