Online Learning Environments: A Health Promotion Approach to Ergonomics
Save to My Collections
Many professionals who do not live close to, or do not wish to attend classes in traditional universities have embraced computer-based distance delivery methods with enthusiasm. While the Internet does provide greater access to education and does not require people to relocate or give up their jobs, over-reliance on it for both work and school raises many questions and concerns. Electronic course delivery requires students to spend time at their computers in addition to other activities they may be required to do on their computers. Using surveys and focus groups, this study examined the extent to which students studying on-line are aware of and/ or are experiencing physical and psychological risks associated with poor use or over-use of computers.
