Abstract:The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between self report of computer technology experience and students’ perception toward a Course Management System (CMS). Participants were two hundred eleven (n=211) undergraduate students, between the ages from 19-24 years old. One hundred fifteen (71.1%) of the participants were male and sixty one were female (28.9%). Data were collected using an online questionnaire during one week period. Pearson correlation coefficients was conducted to determine what relationships exist among the self report of computer technology experience and the five dimensions that were used to assess the students’ perceptions in online courses (including participation, educational material, usefulness, user control and instructor interaction). The results of the correlational analyses identified a significant positive correlation between the self report of computer technology experience and students’ perception in each dimension of the survey. These finding suggest that the higher the computer technology experience, the higher the evaluation of students’ perception. Further research is needed to see if this relationship exists with other student populations enrolled in other online courses.
