Announcement by Mari Watanabe-Rose on 12/21/10

  • An interesting study regarding online vs. face-to-face courses at Virginia community colleges (http://ccrc.tc.columbia.edu/Publication.asp?UID=813):

    – Students with stronger academic preparation were more likely to enroll in online courses.
    – Regardless of their initial level of preparation, students were more likely to fail or withdraw from online courses than from face-to-face courses.
    – Students who took online course in early semesters were slightly less likely to return to school in subsequent semesters.
    – Students who took a higher proportion of credits online were slightly less likely to attain an educational award or transfer to a four-year institution.

    Happy Holidays, everyone!
