How Women Actually Perform in Distance Education

Excerpt

... two studies of students in Indiana--one conducted at Ball State and the other at Indiana State university--found no statistically significant difference between male and female students in their satisfaction with distance-education courses. The studies included more than two dozen courses and more than 400 students... Old Dominion researchers asked 12,000 students in almost 150 distance-learning courses in 25 degree programs about their satisfaction with the courses found no significant differences between men and women... the bottom line is that neither female nor male distance-learning students appear to learn less than students in traditional classes. In fact, the evidence indicates the opposite.
