Overall, students’acceptance of the Internet and the Web for course delivery was positive. Statistical analysis of the survey data reveals that the proportion of “Strongly Agree” or “Agree” responses on most assertions are significantly greater than 75% in both prior and posterior surveys. The proportion of agreements on all of the assertions, except the following two, was not significantly different between prior and posterior surveys. The proportion of agreement on assertion five which had to do with better class performance due to the posting of the assignments on the Web, at the end of class was significantly higher than the proportion of agreement at the beginning of the class. At the prior survey, the proportion of agreement on assertion four, which had to do with the use of e-mail to enhance and facilitate communications among students and faculty, was not significantly different between the traditional in-class and the on-line sections. But in the posterior survey, for the traditional group, it was significantly higher than the on-line group. Other findings are reviewed in the data analysis section of the paper.
