Use of Digital Learning Objects to Improve Student Problem Solving Skills
AbstractStudents in a traditional agriculture class were surveyed to learn their perceptions of digital learning objects created by the instructor to improve student problem solving ability. Student assignments and exam scores were compared. The students enrolled in the course with digital learning objects scored higher on exams than a similar section which did not include digital learning objects. However, student performance was mixed with regard to assignment and exam scores for the students who used the digital learning objects.
