Students who use online classes and courses have fewer absences, tardy arrivals, and turned in assignments on-time more often than their traditional classroom peers. Further, online students were more likely to be happy with taking a required course. Also, use of technology in the classroom helped engage students with material noting that a learning classic essay material was more interesting with the help of technology compared to learning the material in traditional lecture form.
