The research's question prior to conducting the study was web-based faculty development as effective as print-based faculty development at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The study compared the University of Nebraska Medical Center faculty levels of self-perceived awareness of (1) supported web-based applications and (2) consultant services available to assist faculty in the integration of web-based technologies. Currently at UNMC there are 557 full time faculty, two random groups were selected from the total population for a total sample of 200 study participants. One group was requested to complete a questionnaire upon the completion of a web-based tutorial. The second group was requested to complete a questionnaire upon completing a print-based tutorial. Both questionnaires contained three sections; section one contained demographic information, section two contained information regarding the awareness of available web-based applications and section three contained information regarding the awareness of the available consultants when integrating instructional technology. Based on the results, the study showed the UNMC full-time faculty who received the web-based tutorial (Group A) did not perceive themselves as more aware of the UNMC supported web-based applications and consultant services available to assist in the integration of web-based technologies than the print-based group (Group B).
