Abstract

This exploratory, descriptive study examined instructor and female student attitudes toward asynchronous online discussion (AOD) in Saudi Arabia. Preliminary results, derived from an attitudinal-based survey, indicated that, in aggregate, instructors and students had positive attitudes toward using AOD at a female institution of higher education in Saudi Arabia. Inferentially, the two groups differed in their perceptions of using AOD in some instances. Additional results indicated that instructors were willing to teach using AOD and female students were agreeable to using AOD in their classes.
