Academic Affairs Online: A Survey of Information Available on Websites in Higher Education
Recent studies have centered on the pedagogical implications of employing Internet technology (email, the WWW, chatrooms) in college-and-university level instruction. In comparison, little research has been published with regard to using Internet technology to aid in administrative, academic issues in higher education. Although colleges and universities are increasingly using Internet resources to appeal to a diverse and computer-literate student population, our survey of 65 Virginia institutions reveals that they have not employed those resources as effectively as possible. In this article, we focus descriptively on admissions, financial aid, and academic policy websites used by students, alumni, faculty, and staff and offer suggestions on how to make those sites more informative and navigable.
