dc.description.abstract <p>The use of online learning to teach academic courses in higher education is increasing</p> <p>(Allen & Seaman, 2011; Baehr, 2012; Pastore & Carr-Chellman, 2009). The use of online</p> <p>learning modules can be used to replace face-to-face classroom lecture. Research in the field</p> <p>of e-learning and adult learners supports the use of interactive e-learning to aid in</p> <p>engagement of learner and with knowledge retention (Bozarth, 2008; Clark, 2008, 2010;</p> <p>Clark & Lyons, 2011; Clark & Mayer, 2008; Duarte, 2008). However, the production of</p> <p>online learning modules that meet the criteria of e-learning is time consuming and expensive</p> <p>(Chapman, 2010). This study explored the effect of level of interaction with learning</p> <p>modules on student performance and on student satisfaction by comparing the knowledge</p> <p>achievement (measured by quiz and exam scores) and satisfaction (measured by student</p> <p>responses to satisfaction survey) of 34 students enrolled in an online academic course after</p> <p>viewing a series of two styles of learning modules (linear or interactive). Six chapters of</p> <p>material were presented throughout the duration of the data collection period.</p> <p>The results of this study indicate viewing interactive learning modules did not</p> <p>increase knowledge achievement. The effect of interaction on satisfaction could not be</p> <p>determined due to insufficient data. Recommendation for future research include addressing</p> <p>study limitations (sample size, validation of satisfaction survey, equivalence of assessment</p> <p>materials, and duplication of textbook content in delivered through the learning modules).</p>
