|Abstract:||The purpose of the study was two-fold, first to determine the effectiveness of two type computer-based music instructional programs, the TAP (Traditional Approach Program) and the GAP (Game Approach Program). The second purpose was to compare the effects of instruction delivered through the Internet and through the traditional computer laboratory setting.
During January 1995, 52 students enrolling in keyboard or music fundamental classes at one community college (Parkland College at Champaign) and two universities (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and Indiana University and Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI)) participated in the experiment. Classes met during the spring semester with 17 subjects at Parkland College using the computer program Note Detective (TAP), which adopted the traditional teaching approach. Twenty-one subjects at IUPUI worked on the computer program, Keyboard Namegame (GAP), which adopted the game teaching approach. Fourteen students at UIUC were randomly assigned to work on either Note Detective or Keyboard Namegame. Since students at Parkland College did not have access to the Internet, they received the materials in a computer laboratory setting. But, students in UIUC and IUPUI received the experimental materials via the Internet. The posttest and post-questionnaire were then immediately administered after the treatment.
The findings indicated that both programs Note Detective and Keyboard Namegame were effective in teaching piano note reading skills. But, there was no statistically significant difference in the posttest scores between the students using Note Detective and students using Keyboard Namegame. Further, students participating in the experiment through the Internet showed positive attitudes toward receiving instruction and taking tests through the Internet. The successful experiences of delivering instructional materials through the Internet suggest that all instructional activities which used to occur in the classroom can be delivered to students world-wide who are connected to the Internet.
