Fear Factor: The AIS Course And Non-Positive Attitudes Towards Computers

Ronald J. Daigle, Philip W. Morris
2011 Review of Business Information Systems (RBIS)  
Students provide their computer attitudes before and after taking an itroductory AIS course, and are classified as having positive or non-positive attitudes before the course. Those with some degree of a non-positive attitude are influenced most - and positively so - by the course. No gender differences are noted. While these findings are promising, some aspects of non-positive attitudes do not improve and gaps still exist between partitioned groups. Prior computer experience helps explain prior attitudes. Impact of findings is discussed.
