Title: Teaching Guitar in an Online Environment

Citation: Kato, M. (2011, April 16) Teaching Guitar in an Online Environment: An instructional design project. PowerPoint presented at 2011 Technology, Colleges, and Community Worldwide Online Conferences.
Abstract: Many colleges, universities, and educational institutions regularly
include online music classes in their schedule of courses. However, such courses
do not focus on teaching the physical aspects of playing a musical instrument. The
purpose of this instructional design project is to design and evaluate
the effectiveness of an online module structured to teach beginning level students
basic symbols and terminology associated with playing the guitar. The module
was accompanied with a pre-module survey, pre-test, post-test, and an attitudinal
survey. Twelve individuals from the University of Hawai‘i's College of Education
and Educational Technology Departments participated in testing the module and
evaluating its ability to deliver guitar instruction in an online learning
environment. Group scores from the pre-test and post-test indicate that the module
was fairly successful in reaching its teaching objectives. Collected data from the
tests and surveys suggest that revisions to the module include additional examples
and student rehearsal of the concepts linked to the imperfect test scores.
Implications from the research are discussed and highlight the many tasks
associated with designing and implementing online guitar instruction.
