Relationships Between Course Capture Systems and Student Performance in Dental Hygiene Education.


Purpose: The aim of this mixed-methods longitudinal study was to assess student perceptions of technology use, and to examine the relationship between technology use and performance as reflected by self-reported student grade point averages.Methods: Students (n=351) enrolled in a dental hygiene program within a dental school located in the mid-western United States were surveyed in three courses from 2008 through 2012 to gather their perceptions regarding usage of a lecture recording system (LRS). Additionally, self-reported grade point averages were collected over the same period of time. Data were analyzed using a statistical software program (IBM SPSS; Armonk, NY).Results: The response rate was 82%. Descriptive statistics demonstrated that students believed that the LRS increased their success and satisfaction in the course and would be useful in other courses. Students also reported they would not choose to miss class sessions based on the availability of the recorded lectures. Correlation statistics found no relationship between student GPA and students' perceptions regarding the LRS.Conclusion: Students reported LRS use and availability did not impact their attendance. No relationship was found between students' self-reported GPA and evaluation of the LRS use within the limits of this study.
