Computer Science Students' Online Learning Experience and Workload: Perception Versus Reality
Source: California State University
In this paper, the authors briefly discuss the motivation behind the acceptance and increased prevalence of online courses. They then present a case study that compares computer science students' perception of experience, workload, and time spent with actual workload, and time spent for online and in person courses. The authors categorize common activities such as lecture, homework, reading the textbook, and interacting with others in the class that combined can aid student success in a course. They then discuss and compare student opinions on time spent on these activities.
