Abstract/Description

Educational institutions are increasingly moving towards enhancing learning through the use of integrated information technology. Blended, or augmented, learning, aims to support the traditional learning environment – where the instructor blends online learning with the traditional face-to-face teaching. This may take the form of centrally Managed Systems (LMS), for example, or Instructor-led content such as online video, quizzes and activities. This paper investigates student preferences within a Computer Security and Digital Forensics module, regarding the integration of lecture using narrative-plus-PowerPoint within a traditional educational infrastructure. It thus assesses student perceptions in the usage of on-line lectures for security and digital forensics material, with a specific focus on whether students actually prefer the on-line version to the traditional lecture situation, and on how they use the on-line lecture material.
