I have been teaching in the Department of Computer Science, University of San
Antonio, since Fall, 1995. I received my M.Sc. degree in
Computer Science and my Ed.D. in Education from University of Texas at San Antonio in 1997 and 2010, respectively. I received my B.Sc. degree in
Engineering Science from Trinity University in 1974.
My research interests are in the areas of online education.
Dissertation: A Comparison between Online and Traditional Learning in an
Undergraduate Higher Education Environment
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, The University of Texas at San
This study examines differences in performance on selected assignments and two
examinations between an online and a traditional undergraduate education course.
In addition, differences in Locus of Control between the courses are examined. A
MANCOVA indicated no significant difference in Locus of Control. MANCOVA
indicated that student performance on assignments showed no significant
difference between the course delivery types. Student test scores showed a
substantial and statistically significant difference between the traditional and
online course delivery methods, with the traditional delivery method associated
with higher test scores. Differences in score variances may suggest that student
populations are not monolithic but may consist of identifiable subsets.
