Abstract

In Nigeria, as more secondary schools and tertiary institutions contemplate developing educational materials and programs for delivery via the internet in order to complement traditional classroom teaching, there is the need to assess the effectiveness of the internet as a medium for delivering educational packages. This paper describes an exploratory study that investigated the possibility of integrating e-learning with traditional methods of teaching at an American styled university in Nigeria. By discussing possible reasons for the performance and disposition of sampled students towards e-learning, we suggest implications and effects of internet-based education on student learning.
