Colorado Study finds “No Significant Difference” in Online Science Courses « WCET Frontiers

Colorado Study finds “No Significant Difference” in Online Science Courses « WCET Frontiers:

 "Just when we thought it was safe to move beyond the “no significant difference” phenomenon[i], knowing that scarcely any college class today is untouched by technology – we find ourselves in 2012 still engaged in debates about “online” versus “traditional” instruction.  We don’t find this debate at conferences or annual meetings like WCET where conversations are centered on innovation and change.  But within most colleges and universities, there are influential faculty members and groups who hold onto deeply held doubts about the quality of online learning.  There is perhaps no discipline with more misgivings about online learning than Science."
