Abstract

Is network login frequently related to graduate students' writing apprehension, computer anxiety, age, or years of teaching experience? In a correlational pilot study of twenty educational technology students, writing apprehension and computer anxiety levels were measured both before and after eight weeks of using electronic mail, computer conferencing, and remote database searching facilities. Results showed that computer anxiety levels measured after telecomputing experience were significantly correlated with usage statistics, while writing apprehension scores collected before network use were significantly related to login frequency. Graduate students' ages and years of teaching experience were not found to be statistically related to network use.
