Evaluation of Posttest Scores for a Web-based Tutorial Authoring Tool that Encompasses Pedagogy in the Development Process
Educational content on the Internet is rapidly increasing. Academicians and businesses are placing more course material on-line to supplement classroom and business training situations. In addition significant increases in undergraduate enrollments in Information System courses and the rapid pace of new knowledge in the field leads researches to call for new innovative approaches to learning. Prior researchers have reported that this new web-based training technology (which has it foundation in computer-based training) has not integrated sound pedagogical practices into the authoring process when developing new tutorials. This paper summarizes an experiment to evaluate the effect on posttest scores of a web-based authoring tool that includes learning theory in the development process for the author. Early results indicate that the tool is more effective then traditional HTML authoring tools and that the number of exercises affects posttest scores in a positive manner.
Keywords: learning theory, computer-based training, CBT, Web-based tutorials, distance learning
