Education Study Finds Online Learning Beats Face-to-Face Learning - PresenceLearning

An article in the New York Times yesterday reports that a new Department of Education study reached the conclusion that “On average, students in online learning conditions perform better than those receiving face-to-face instruction”. The study, conducted by SRI International, examined 99 academic reports from 1996 – 2008 that directly compared students’ online and classroom performance. The remarkable find was that online learners generally scored in the 59th percentile on exams, while traditional classroom learners only scored in the 50th percentile. This study reaffirms the value of online learning experiences, and we are certain that online courses will become more popular as more students discover the advantages of online learning.
