Online Learning More Effective Than Live Classes, Study Shows

E-LearningOnline college courses can actually be more effective than those taken in a traditional brick-and-mortar setting, according to a recent study by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). Published in 2009 by the DOE’s Policy and Program Study’s Service, the study, titled Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning, looked at more than 1,000 individual papers published on the success of online learning programs. Among its key findings:

  • Students who took all or part of their class online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional face-to-face instruction. And the difference was considered “statistically significant.”
  • Adding Web-based instruction to traditional face-to-face classes helps students more than adding face-to-face teaching to Web-based courses.
  • Staying “on task” had a greater impact for online students than for those in traditional face-to-face classes.
  • How online courses are taught has very little impact on these positive outcomes.

In other words, online educational programs can not only hold its own against traditional in-person programs, but students actually tend to learn more by taking their classes online.
