Title:  Distance Education Instruction by Postsecondary Faculty and Staff: Fall 1998
Description: Using the 1999 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty, this report examines who, among postsecondary faculty and staff, were more likely to teach various types of distance education classes. It also explores how those who taught such classes differed from those who did not in terms of workload, compensation, interaction with students, classroom practices, and job satisfaction. Overall, those who taught distance classes had a higher workload than those who did not. They were also more likely to communicate with their students by e-mail and to use Web sites for their classes.
