Studies: Online Ed Not Better or Worse Than Traditional Classes - Hechinger Report

Does online learning work? Do college students learn better, or at least as well, from computer instruction as they do from a human teacher? That’s a question asked over and over by not only students, parents and professors, but also by academic researchers. It’s especially important because universities are offering more and more of their courses online. A new paper sheds some light on this question. The author sorted through the best studies on online university courses published in the past couple years, and concluded that online education, or partial online instruction, is neither worse nor better than traditional face-to-face instruction. http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2015/03/23/studies-online-instruction-neither-harms-nor-benefits-average-university-student
