Effectiveness of Online Instruction: Perceptions of Pre-Service Teachers
This study captured the perceptions of pre-service teachers as they relate to online instruction. Twenty-five pre-service teachers enrolled in a graduate level introductory special education course responded to a questionnaire. The course was taught with WebCT. Findings indicate that pre-service teachers are satisfied with their online learning. They believe that they learn in an online class as much as they would in a traditional face-to-face class.
