The Learning Process and WebCT

Peter Ingle.


The presentation is intended to promote discussion about the use of WebCt for information, communication and learning in college courses. WebCt is an exciting and easy to use technology available to many college faculty. One faculty member in the School of Education at Westminster College chose to use WebCt in a variety of courses over the past 2 years. This presentation focuses on the impact of this decision on both the faculty member and students in his courses.

The impact on the faculty member include; learning the new technology, engaging in discussions about its uses, determining which components to use, and evaluating the outcomes of such choices. Student impact focuses on difficulties using the site, interactions with students and faculty, postings, and discussion tools.

Examples of each of these components will be presented. Relevant information will be provided concerning how the faculty might chose to use tools within WebCt. Lastly, participants will be asked to evaluate the tools and their impact on learning discussed.
