Abstract:The intent of this Bachelor Thesis was to investigate experiences and attitudes of Educational Science and Technology (EST) Pre-Master and Master Students towards an online self-study package. This package was set up to prepare potential EST Pre-Master Students for the on-campus EST Pre-Master Program. The study was conducted on behalf of the Faculty of Behavioral Science at the University of Twente. In total twelve respondents were asked nine closed questions about usage and effect via a Likert Scale and three open questions about value, satisfaction and suggestions for improvement. It was found that the students use the package in general, yet they do not use it frequently and have mediocre opinions about the effect the package would have. The package has both advantages and shortcomings according to the students’ responses. Advantages are an opportunity to prepare them for the actual EST Pre-Master Program, gaining first insights into the content of the program and getting used to and practice standards at a university. Listed shortcomings contain little support from the faculty and no feedback from experts as well as an overwhelming content and little motivation. These findings are presented elaborately and give suggestions for improvement and new ideas. It concludes with bringing together and interpreting literature findings and outcomes from the questionnaire.
