Proposal Title

Do Students Learn Computer Skills Better in a Classroom?

Proposal Abstract

As the College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management at the University of South Carolina-Columbia moves to delivering their core 200-level computer applications for business course online, the question remains whether the quality of student learning for computer applications skills is comparable to the classroom environment. To assess student learning in the core computer applications course in its various delivery formats: in class lab, small online (approximately 30), and large online (approximately 200), a survey was distributed at the beginning of the advanced computer applications course assessing students' ability to complete the skills covered in the core course and their perception of their ability to complete these skills. Survey questions aligned to the learning objectives from the core computer applications course. The purpose of this proposed poster session is to report the results of the data analysis, comparing student results from the various delivery methods.
