Abstract

This research study examines the effect of online pediatric courses for parents’ knowledge of pediatric diseases and their perception of the online courses. The study was guided by the following research questions. 1. Is there any effect of online pediatric courses for parents to increase their knowledge about pediatric diseases? 2. What are the parent’s perceptions of online pediatric course? This is an explanatory sequential mix method research. The participants consisted with 34 Chinese parents. In order to evaluate the pediatric knowledge of parents, pretest and posttest have been done. The pre and posttest used the same questions. The data description and dependent t-test were employed to analyze the numerical data. Moreover, pre and post surveys were involved to evaluate the parent’s perception of the online courses. Again, the pre and post surveys shared the same questions for comparison. In order to further investigate the parent’s perception towards the online courses, I conducted semi-structured interviews with three selected parents based on the classification of their test scores. The research is in progress, I collected pre-test and pre survey. The scores of participants practically fit for normal distribution, after the post-test and post survey data collected, I can use dependent t test to assess whether there are statistical significance. The data collection and analysis will be finished on Mar. 8, 2017. This study will conclude with a discussion in relation to literatures, the implications of the findings on the effect of online pediatric courses, limitations, and recommendations for future research.
