Has anybody ever surveyed student satisfaction with Blogger or other web 2.0 tools? I know there’s the student pre-survey, but most of the questions focus on skill development/comfort, frequency of use, and expectations about grade, time commitment and accessibility. I’m still undecided whether students prefer online activities over classroom discussions and vice versa. When asked about their preferences (online vs. in-person activities), only a few students express their opinions and even then, it’s mostly neutral. I would like to develop a brief questionnaire that surveys students’ satisfaction (and experiences) with web 2.0 tools. I thought of using SurveyMonkey? In hindsight, it would have been great to compare student learning in “regular” classes versus web 2.0 enhanced classes. Of course it’s too late for the current semester as both of my classes are using Blogger and there’s no control group, but something to think about in the future?
