Bu çalışmanın amacı, Programlama Dilleri I dersi için hazırlanan çevrimiçi öğrenme ortamı olan Uzaktan Öğrenme Platformuna (UÖP) ilişkin, uzaktan öğrenenlerle geleneksel öğrenenlerin başarılarını ve derse devam oranlarını karşılaştırmaktır. Bunun yanında öğrenenlerin geçmiş başarılarının ve derse devam oranlarının bu dersten aldıkları başarı puanlarına etkisi araştırılmıştır.

Araştırmanın çalışma kümesini, Bilgisayar ve Öğretim Teknolojileri Eğitimi bölümünde Programlama Dilleri I dersini alan 38 öğrenen oluşmaktadır. Amaçlı örnekleme sonucunda deney grubu, deney grubuyla eşleştirme yöntemi kullanılarak da kontrol grubu oluşturulmuştur. Deney grubundaki öğrenenler 14 haftalık dönem boyunca derslere tamamen uzaktan erişmişlerdir. Kontrol grubundaki öğreneneler ise geleneksel yöntemlerle dersleri almışlardır. Bu öğrenenlere sanal sınıf uygulamalarıyla, belirlenen zamanlarda ve geleneksel yöntemle işlenen derslerle birebir aynı ders saati uygulanmıştır. Alan uzmanları tarafından hazırlanan ara sınav ve yarıyıl sonu sınavları, öğrenenlerin başarı puanı olarak değerlendirilmiştir. Aynı zamanda öğrenci bilgi sistemi üzerinden, öğrenenlerin akademik ortalama, derse devam oranları ve diğer demografik bilgilerine ulaşılmıştır.

Araştırma sonucunda, deney grubu öğrenenlerinin kontrol grubundaki öğrenenlere kıyasla daha başarılı oldukları ve derslere daha çok devam ettikleri sonucu ortaya çıkmıştır.
