Summary

This study tested the Adult Distance Study through Computer Conferencing (ADSCC) model developed by D. Eastmond (1994) to determine if learner readiness, online features, and computer mediated communication (CMC)-related learning approaches are associated with learner satisfaction in an academic computer conference. Participants were 50 students from 5 universities who participated in an inter-university virtual conference and completed the research instrument. All three variables were correlated with learner satisfaction, and online features emerged as the best predictor of learner satisfaction. Results indicate interrelationships between the three variables. The ADSCC model was a good predictor of learner satisfaction, and it provided a useful framework for understanding learner satisfaction by showing how to categorize the different components that influence satisfaction in an academic computer conference. The study also examined learner profiles for those who were more satisfied and less satisfied with the computer conference. (Contains 4 tables and 22 references.) (Author/SLD)
