Impact of Web-Based Training on Learning Outcomes: Gender Differences

Yazan Alghazo [4] | May Al khaldi

Abstract: This study examines gender differences in a web-based training program by discovering the impact of using a web-based training program on trainees? learning outcomes. The researchers utilized a mixed-methods approach that consisted of an experimental study and qualitative data collection. The sample population of the experiment was composed of 25 female and 25 male participants. However, the qualitative data were gathered through interviews with 8 female and 8 males from these trainees. The study is based on 3 main hypotheses that address the differences between males? achievements on a pretest and posttest, females? achievements on a pretest and posttest, and both the male and female participants? learning outcomes in the web-based training program. The findings of the quantitative data indicate that there is no significant difference between the male and female participants? results on the pretests. However, the male participants? training outcomes in the posttest were higher than those of the female participants. In general, the researchers conclude that the variations in male and female participants' training outcomes may be a result of a fear of participation on the part of the female participants, in addition to the impact of technical problems that might have affected the trainees' performance and engagement in the program.
