כנס מיטל 2010 Library and Information Science Students' Feedback in an Online Course ד " ר נועה אהרוני, אוניברסיטת בר אילן
כנס מיטל 2010 The research questions are: 1. What are the main themes revealed as LIS students express their experience in online courses? 2. Is there a difference between the themes of LIS university students and those of LIS college students as revealed in their feedback?
כנס מיטל 2010 An example for the personal impression category: "As a first course I took in online learning, I must admit that I really enjoyed it". "Dear Dr. X: Continue succeeding in such courses. It was a great experience for me"
כנס מיטל 2010 Meta-Analysis Process of learning
כנס מיטל 2010 An example for the reflection category: "The fact that we were asked to hand in the answers and responses to other students' assignments to the forum sharpened our way of thinking and contributed much to the discussions"
כנס מיטל 2010 Active discussion The ability to be exposed to different perspectives Interest
כנס מיטל 2010 An example for the collaboration category: "I had the possibility to respond online, I learnt to 'listen' to my peers and had the feeing that someone really read what I wrote and responded accordingly"
כנס מיטל 2010 An example for the course management category: "I enjoyed the way the instructor managed the course: She summarized the discussions, responded to each student, and answered the questions quickly"
כנס מיטל 2010 The comparison between LIS university students and LIS college students shows that LIS university students concentrate on enjoyment, interest and positive experience, while LIS college students prefer to discuss both their positive and negative experience
כנס מיטל 2010 The second category -- reflection -- turns out to be larger within LIS university students than within LIS college students (59.09% versus 40.90%)
כנס מיטל 2010 The next category, collaboration, seems to be larger within LIS university students (64.28%) than within LIS college students (35.71%)
כנס מיטל 2010 Conclusions: LIS university students are more satisfied with their online learning experience LIS university students discuss and express more reflective, analytic meta-cognitive aspects of the learning process than their college counterparts
כנס מיטל 2010 It is interesting to note that LIS student feedback in both environments did not contain only courtesy, social or good manners remarks, but included content based comments that reflected deep thoughts, analysis and meaning of the learning process
