Learning in an Online Format Versus an In-class Format: An Experimental Study


Our study demonstrates that the learning of online students is equal to the learning of inclass students for our sample. Interestingly, the group of students who self-selected into the online courses scored higher on the pretests than did the inclass students. This result is an indication that the students who select online courses may be better prepared for the course material than the students who select inclass courses. This preparedness may not, however, lead to greater learning since there were no significant differences between the two groups on students on their posttest scores.
