The use of technology in university and college classrooms has changed in recent years to include the use of course Web sites as a supplement to face-to-face instruction (Green, 2000). Despite this increase in the use of course Web sites in college courses, limited attention has been given to student perceptions of this pedagogical tool. This study explores students’ use and perceived helpfulness of course Web sites (i.e., Web sites used to supplement traditional classroom instruction) in university courses. Three hundred twelve university students were surveyed over two semesters in the 2001-2002. Overall, students had positive attitudes towards course Web sites. The most helpful features listed were course documents, announcements, and gradebook. Students indicated that the course Web site increased access to course information which helped keep them organized and on task. In addition, the course Web site facilitated communication with their instructor and peers outside of regular class time.
