My distant education course, IT103 – ICT in Society and Working Life, is finished for this term. Tom Erik Holteng and I both did an electronic survey to see if our use of various tools to make our teaching better, actually worked. Did our use of Podcasting, Power Point Broadcasting and Flash movies provide the students with better learning?
According to the 25 students (of ca. 80) who did the survey, the majority said yes.
And what about my use of sexual abuse of children in digital media as a theme for this course? Did it motivate the students in their work with this course? Again the students responded with an overwhelming yes.
There are several problems in connection with this sort of surveys, but at least it`s an indication that this years experiments was not a failure.
