Reducing Information and Communications Overload in Management Online Education
Cutting-edge technologies have been used in the BAS in Supervision and Management program to enhance online discussions and classroom interaction based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). On the other hand, some of these technologies have also created information and communication overload in online courses. Students have returned to basic discussions where content quality has more value than the delivery method or the technology involved. They are SURVIVING information overload. The TAM model is being used to filter all new technologies implemented in management online courses, to reduce unnecessary methods that could overwhelm learners and distract them from the course content.
