Alshahrani, Saeed and Ward, Rupert (2012) Impact of web applications on student-lecturer relationship. In: The 6th Saudi Scientific International Conference, 11th-14th October 2012, Brunel University, Uxbridge, UK.

In the history of the development of higher education, the relationship between the lecturer and the students has changed because of many different factors. Before the internet and web revolution, the lecturer used to be the main information source for his/her students. The web, as a modern source of knowledge, is now used universally and this spreading might affect the relationship between the lecturer and his students. Understanding the impact of this change appears to be important as it would be employed in improving teaching techniques. In this area, many studies have focused on the impact of using the internet and web applications on education’s three axes which are students, lecturer, and study environment (Rimm-Kaufman, 2010, Jones et al., 2011, Giles, 2009). These studies have widely investigated this impact on student’s achievements, attitude and also have shown how the role and performance of the faculty have improved. This research aims to investigate the impact of using web technology on the student-lecturer relationship in Saudi Arabia. Data for this project collected from many public and private universities/educational organisations in Saudi Arabia.
