An Exploratory Case Study: The Sudden Introduction of Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) in an ODL Accounting Program. The University of Papua New Guinea Open College (UPNG OC) experience
The sudden introduction of IPTV provided the opportunity to cautiously appraise the role of technology to support the predominantly print form of distributed learning within the UPNG OC network. Towards appraising and evaluating the IPTV this research question was posed; does the IPTV Live Broad Cast have an effect on the Accounting 2 DE learners’ academic performances? To answer this question the quasi - experimental design was employed and the t - test was used to compare the aggregate academic grade scores of the ODL students using print and those using print and supported by IPTV Live Broad Cast. An eclectic stance is taken in discussing the use of IPTV and the results obtained, and conclusions were made with reference to Laurillard’s Conversational Framework (1993) and the Equivalency Theory (Simonson. 2000). And finally recommendations for policy makers and academics are offered with respect to the findings of this study with the hope that relevant actions are taken to improve and establish an economically prudent and appropriate strategy for effective use of technology to support distance learning courses among a network of campus and centre sites in Papua New Guinea.// Paper ID 186
