Abstract: Students who completed at least one of three introductory Criminology courses offered through Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Online and Distance Education (CODE) between May 2013 and April 2014 were invited to participate in an online survey regarding their perceptions of and experiences with these three fully online courses. The three courses varied substantively from each other in their online format and pedagogical approaches. The research indicates that students find interactive exercises, educational video games, online audio-visual instruction (e.g., online lectures or Webcasts) and online quizzes helpful in understanding course content and preparing for examinations. Results regarding participation in online discussion groups were mixed, although students feel these groups give them an opportunity to interact with their peers in the online environment. The survey results have already influenced the format of recently revised and newly designed CODE courses at the university, and are expected to inform the design of future courses. (More)
