Abstract/Contents:"Freshman students were randomly assigned to either a WWW-based section (http://www.courses.ncsu.edu/CSO21) (46 students) or traditional classroom lecture section (48 students) of an introductory turfgrass management course. Preliminary assessment of background knowledge in turfgrass management indicated no difference between the two groups. WWW information was presented using extensive text, PowerPoint® presentations, color slides, illustrations, and graphs. Lecture topics and instructional materials were identical for both groups. WWW students did not attend lecture and communicated with each other and the instructor vie e-mail and a question/answer forum. All students met together to take three identical mid-semester examinations and a comprehensive final exam. Raw scores for the four exams averaged 61.8% for WWW-based students and 64.0% for classroom students, not statistically different. Student performance, their perceptions of the course and focus group results will be discussed."
