3. E-LEARNING AS A TEACHING APPROACH

 The two web-based courses developed here have been used as a supplement to regular classes for students erolled in the mechanical technology department at Hail Collge of Technology for the last two academic years. In order to make an evaluation of this experience within our technical college conditions, a survey has been designed and given to enrolled students attending the courses during the second semester of the academic year 2004/2005. The number of students who answered the survey was 50 out of 57 students enrolled on the course. Typical results for the metrology web-based course are summarized in table 1 and figure 5. From the survey results it was clearly hown that the e-Learning approach is well accepted by our students though some difficulties and barriers which still exist between the student and the internet. The great majority of the students agreed that most of the aspects related to the design, development, implementation and delivery of the electronic courses via the internet are good. Most importantly is that the tested students showed a general acceptance to learn through this new approach while some of our colleagues educators and trainers still show some resistance to change from the face-to-face traditional method to the new method of teaching and training through the web (e-Learning).
