This study examined student satisfaction with technology enhanced traditional courses. Students were enrolled in two courses where the instructors used Blackboard to supplement the course content. Student responses indicated that students were very satisfied with the technology-enhanced course and liked the availability of lecture notes, links to additional resources and online discussions. Students also provided feedback about face to face and online discussions. Students who preferred online discussions, liked the flexibility and convenience of the medium of communication. Students who preferred face to face discussions felt that online discussions lacked personal touch. Implications of the results for instructors and future research are also discussed.
