Ed/ITLib Digital Library → An Investigation on Individual Students’ Perceptions of Interest Utilizing a Blended Learning Approach
Research has established that individual student interest has a positive effect on learning and academic achievement. However, little is known about the impact of a blended learning ap-proach on individual student interest and whether combinations of online and face-to-face learning activities significantly enhance student interest. This paper assesses the effect of blended learning on perceived individual student interest, utilizing a blend of online and face-to-face discussions. The study employed a quasi-experimental design consisting of two differ-ent treatment groups, online discussions versus face-to-face discussions. Data were analyzed using the t-test technique. Results from the study suggest that there was no statistical differ-ence in subjects’ perception of interest in both the online and face-to-face discussions. How-ever, from observation, subjects in the online discussions were eager to engage in textual dia-logue and therefore, participated more in the discussions compared to the face-to-face discussions.

News: To Profs, YouTube Tops Twitter - Inside Higher Ed
"Probing the uses of nine different types of social media among professors, the study found that professors consider YouTube the most useful tool by far -- for both teaching and non-classroom professional use. Nearly a third of respondents said they instructed students to watch online videos as homework, and about 73 percent said they thought YouTube videos were either somewhat or very valuable for classroom use, regardless of whether they use them currently.

Other Web 2.0 tools fared less well among the professors -- particularly the tools with the most currency in broader culture. Only 2 percent of the professors said they used Twitter in class, and another 2 percent said they used it for professional purposes outside the classroom. Slightly more said they could see at least some value in the microblogging site, but those long-sellers still amounted to less than a tenth of all respondents."
