Online & the Classroom

September 17, 2010 author: Leave a comment Go to comments

Wanted to share links to a few recent posts from the New York Times BITS blog (Business*Innovation*Technology*Society).

The first (Study Finds That Online Education Beats the Classroom) is from August and describes the results of a report produced for the US DoE about the effectiveness of online courses compared with that of comparable face-to-face offerings.

The second (Second Thoughts On Online Education) is a follow-up that discusses another study, funded the the DoE and the NSF, in which the finding were more nuanced in important ways. The comments readers posted in response to this second piece were also fairly thoughtful as well.

Would love to hear other responses from within the IIT community.
