How Students Perceive Online Teaching IT Subjects within the MS TEAMS Environment
The presented research had two primary goals. The first goal was to find out what is the attitude of students to lectures and exercises conducted through the MS Teams application. Students’ attitudes to online teaching were identified by the students’ activity within the subject Modeling of Business Processes and by students’ opinions on the usability and applicability of the acquired knowledge. Another goal of the research was to find out whether gender influences the perception of online teaching by students.
The obtained results indicate that the lectures through the MS TEAMS application are more acceptable for students than face-to-face lectures. Also, in such a lecture, students are more active, more often asking the teacher questions. Surprisingly, MS TEAMS exercises are not considered more useful by students than face-to-face exercises. The results further showed that women assigned lower values to most factors than men. The results of the research predict the influence of gender on students’ attitudes to online teaching. It would be necessary to determine further whether the difference between the average values in the group of men and women is statistically significant. This difference can be verified in a larger group of respondents. Therefore, we plan to continue the research.
