Document Number: 3343Distance Education Instruction by Postsecondary Faculty and Staff: Fall 1998 - This report examines the types of postsecondary faculty and staff that are more likely to teach distance education classes. The report 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. (Ellen M. Bradburn, National Center for Education Statistics, February 2002)...
