This study examines the integration of technology into teaching and learning mathematics for nontraditional adult-learners, in a public 2-year technical college environment.
The study was based on comparing the impact on student outcomes of three teaching methodologies: traditional face-to-face, internet based on-line, and a new composite methodology combining the components of face-to-face and on-line called web-enhanced.
The researcher found no significant difference on the impact of student achievement. However, a positive impact on attrition and persistence was observed.
The conclusion drawn from these findings support implementing web-enhanced methodologies in educational institutions with a majority non-traditional student population.
