Assessment of web-based learning (WBL) techniques in attaining instructional objectives in higher institutions in Rivers state, Nigeria
The techniques and processes the teacher teach and the learner also learn are conducted, like many other human endeavours, are taking a new approach since the introduction of educational technologies in schools. The old traditional less-flexible ways of teaching and learning have largely replacing with Web-based learning (WBL). Web-based or e-learning is a learning technique that uses a variety of technologies such as the Internet to teach the learner. This technique of learning has gained popular acceptance in many educational enterprises in many developed and developing countries, including Nigeria. Web-based learning provides the learner with opportunity to enjoy some levels of independence from the teacher. Such online learning as it is known among teachers allows learning to be practiced anywhere and any place, with the learner in control of his/her learning schedule. The introduction of WBL brings to educational institutions a significant change in teaching/learning, and thus in the achievement of learning outcomes. This promise has compelled many educational and training enterprises, especially universities to leverage on and integrate the WBL in their system to provide wider access to their curriculum beyond their confined host communities. How far the State owned universities have adopted this new technique has become a question that requires answer? This study attempted to provide an empirical assessment of the extent the two public funded universities in Rivers State have explored and integrated WBL technique in attaining their instructional objectives.
