Effect of Distance Learner-Perception of Course Materials on Access to Learning for Professional Development: A Case Study of Centre for Continuing Education, University of Cape Coast, Ghana
PCF5 Theme: Children & Youth // In recent years, technological changes in learning environments have given way to other available resources to meet the needs of any society. These changes give way to new demands on the provider and the learner. Again, it provides new dimensions in the teaching/learning process. Hence, there is the need for both the providers and the learners to achieve instructional goals. As such, all the instructional materials that the providers deem expedient for the running of all programmes should add up as a vital ingredient for instructional success. To this end, (N=300) questionnaires were administered in an attempt to solicit from learners their own perceptions on learning materials which have been made available by the providers of the programme – Centre for Continuing Education, University of Cape Coast, Ghana; regarding its content, design and usability. It studied the effect of Distance Learner-Perception of course materials on access to learning for professional development. The emergent picture revealed that course materials have been well written and designed and the level of language is within the scope of their understanding. The modules are arranged in units with assessment activities learners need to think through before answering. This paper therefore shares the lessons learnt and recommends the use of alternative study materials and measures to enhance their growth for learning and development. // PID 737
