An Analysis of Student Usage of an Online Delivery System

Online courses, Blackboard, student use


Students studying an on-line course within the Blackboard 4.0 delivery system were monitored using the built in statistics package, on a weekly basis over the first month of the course and monthly thereafter, to determine what parts of the delivery system they used at different points of the course. This should allow a more focused teaching strategy to be developed. The results of this pilot study are reported and reasons for the students’ behavior, and further research, suggested.
