Abstract

The purposes of this study were to examine students' perceptions and attitudes toward changes in Distance Education (DE) course management systems and to evaluate their instructional delivery preferences. Students (N = 145) enrolled in an online master's degree program on either a full- or part-time basis completed an online survey instrument specifically designed for this study. Results showed a strong preference for distance education, but no significant differences in student perceptions toward changes in Course Management Systems (CMS). The benefit of transparency in course design is discussed along with other findings.
