COMPARING STUDENT PERFORMANCE: ONLINE VERSUS BLENDED VERSUS FACE-TO-FACE

The purpose of this research was to perform a three way comparison of delivery modes for an introductory Management Information Systems course to determine if there existed a difference in student success among the delivery modes. The research compares student exam and final grade results in this class that was taught by the same instructor using face-to-face, blended and online delivery modes. An Analysis of Variance test was used on the exam and final grade data to determine if a significant difference existed. Additionally, a discussion of this class in relation to student satisfaction, learning effectiveness and faculty satisfaction is presented. This research demonstrates that there is no significant difference among delivery modes. Additionally, blended and online modes for this class do very well when measuring student satisfaction, learning effectiveness and faculty satisfaction.

elearn Magazine: Book Review: 'Digital Teaching Platforms: Customizing Classroom Learning For Each Student' edited by Chris Dede and John Richards | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Truthfully, I did find reading this book a challenge. The classroom learning the book refers to is academic education and secondly, it's aimed at classroom learning in the United States. The challenge for me was to get beyond the fact that the language used is wholly relevant to school education and, more specifically, the U.S. school system. Neither of which I am at all familiar with because my area of expertise is in corporate training in the UK.

Four Mistakes I Made When Assigning Podcasts - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The reality of my podcasting experiments was a series of realizations about how I hadn’t thought these assignments all the way through. My original ideas didn’t prove to be wrong, but my implementation of the assignments could have used some work. Some of my mistakes were certainly rooted in my inexperience as a teacher, while others stemmed from my inexperience with how to produce a podcast.

A Longitudinal Comparison of Online Versus Traditional Instruction

This article presents a longitudinal comparison of online versus traditional instructional delivery methods. Significant research had been conducted comparing online and traditional courses. However, there is no consensus regarding student performance considering the two instructional methods. Additionally, previous studies have focused on a limited number of courses or a short time period. This research study involves a single introductory business application software course, delivered as a traditional course and as an online course, offered over a period of ten years. The course was taught by the same instructor using the same criteria and standards across all classes, however, new versions of the software were utilized. Student performance was analyzed across 30 sections of the course from the years 2001 to 2010. Results indicate that there was no significant difference in student performance between the two modes of course delivery.

Success rates of online versus traditional college students

Are students setting themselves up for failure by taking online courses? Should students be restricted from taking online courses if they have not reached a certain GPA? Should students who fail or withdraw from an online course be required to take to traditional courses for at least one semester? At one Historically Black College or University (HBCU) there seemed to be a marked difference in the success of students taking online courses versus students taking face-to-face courses. Online students seemed to have a higher withdrawal rate, failure rate and seemed to have more trouble completing assignments by the deadline, if at all. Therefore, in the spring 2010 semester data were gathered from four management courses, two online and two face-to-face, across two different subjects, with different professors and different students to see if there was any notable difference in online achievement versus face-to-face achievement and if there was a difference in achievement why were online students performing so poorly as compared to face-to-face students.

Converge Special Report The Textbook Reformation & Digital Content

If the Encyclopedia Britannica can go digital, anything can. Right? This sure seems to be the case in education; the headlines are hard to miss: “The end of textbooks?” Or, “In some classrooms, books are a things of the past.” But is it really that easy? As the textbook reformation sweeps the nation, K-20 education needs to brace itself for a big change. It’s not as simple as just replacing traditional textbooks with online versions. Several hurdles from outdated legislation and procurement policies to technology concerns and professional development stand in the way. And students’ success hinges on campuses getting it right. This Converge Special Report on the Textbook Reformation and Digital Content examines this educational transformation in all its facets: from curriculum acquisition to best practices for a successful transition to key governmental policy measures. We’ll tell you about technology concerns, professional development tips, managing plagiarism and copyright, and much more. Along the way, we’ll introduce you to many schools and universities adopting digital technology in different ways, sharing their stories of the ways in which this digital movement is changing education and promises to reshape it even further in the future.

An Introduction to Technologies Commonly Used by College Students

College students expect faculty and student affairs staff to use newer technologies to connect to them, but institutions are ill prepared to respond to this change (Junco and Mastrodicasa, 2007; Duderstadt, Atkins, and Van Houweling, 2002). Of one thousand college-bound high school juniors, Noel-Levitz (2006) found that 72 percent have an interest in exchanging instant messages with an admissions counselor or student worker, 64 percent have an interest in reading a blog written by a faculty member, 63 percent have an interest in reading profiles of current students, and 63 percent have an interest in reading a blog written by a current stu- dent. Incoming students have used social networking Web sites to help them connect with others with similar interests before they arrive on cam- pus. This early and immediate connection has allowed incoming students the ability to investigate their future roommates on Facebook, leading to record numbers of them asking to change roommates before the first day on campus (Farrell, 2006).

Weighing Teaching and Research: a Longstanding Dilemma - Innovations - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Weighing Teaching and Research: a Longstanding Dilemma - Innovations - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
What is “consumatory scholarship? It’s essentially the lit review that every conscientious teacher—professor, graduate student or adjunct—conducts in the course of preparation to teach every class. It involves familiarizing oneself with the critical history of the text one is teaching, getting a general sense of the most recent scholarship about that text (if one regularly teaches Samuel Richardson’s Pamela, as I do, that’s a load), and preparing oneself to give the class at least a general cultural and historical context for what they are about to read. As Henderson points out, at a non-research-intensive university or liberal-arts college, that’s a much tougher job, because the instructor is typically teaching more courses and more varied courses.

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

You often hear people talk about how technology is so “engaging” for kids. But that misses the point. It’s not the technology that’s engaging, it’s the opportunity to use technology to create something that is valued by the community and by yourself. Yes, a new device can be entertaining for a while, but when the novelty value wears off, what are you left with?
