Mot en mer teknikbaserad läromiljö? - en studie om attityder kring nya kommunikationsmöjligheter i distansutbildningen
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to compare the needs, desires and attitudes to new communicative possibilities within distance education amongst students from two different user groups; media and communication, and a group we call average users. We have studied litterature to establish an overview of the area of the subject of matter, and from this ground having made examinations with quantitative and qualitative methods, using surveys and interviews. A total of 146 people got the survey through e-mail. Of these people, 38 answered the survey, which leads to a response frequency of 26 %. To get a broader picture of certain areas, we chose to draw up an interview with the survey underlying it. We made four interviews, with two respondants from each user group. The result we got from our examinations shows that there are some differencies between the examined groups, but also many similarities. In the analysis we have done, the differencies indicate that there is an interest of new communicative solutions within the group average users. The differencies are not quite the same as the hypothesis we had put forward in the beginning of this work. The more technical attitude was amongst the average users, instead of amongst the media and communications students as were expected by us. The causes for this can be many; the student can have had a too narrow perspective when thinking about new communicative solutions. The characteristica of the course can have influenced the way of which the students have communicated with each other. We know that the age slightly differs between the two groups; this could also be a cause for how often the student wants to communicate with other participants in the course. Even if the examinations show a mixed interest in new communicative solutions amongst our respondants, we still consider that further research to make distance educations more efficient within the ICT-area should be done to be able to follow the development of the society.
