Findings of the Qualitative Study

Analysis of Qualitative Research Hypothesis

Hypothesis 3

To investigate hypothesis 3, participants were given an online asynchronous

interview at the end of their course. These results were hand coded and examined to

identify overarching themes amongst students about their motivation and use of Web 2.0

technologies.

Introduction to the Participants

One hundred forty-one students enrolled in the first-year or second-year Spanish

beginning or intermediate online language courses at the target Midwestern community

college during the summer quarter of 2008 or the fall quarter of 2008. Each student

participated in an asynchronous online interview during the last week of the course.

Students were selected to participate in the control group (non Web 2.0 technology

course) or the experimental group (with Web 2.0 technology course) using purposeful

random sampling. Table 1 provides an overview of the students‘ background information

(N= 141) for who participated in the online interview.
