Can Virtual Classrooms Recreate a Traditional College Experience?

The burgeoning online education scene is a practical option to a traditional college education for a number of reasons — cost, convenience and efficiency. And for professors it offers a consistent classroom format.

 

A number of online education sites say the goal is not to be a substitute for the classroom experience, but to offer an even more collaborative learning environment, while also making education convenient and accessible for everyone — whether you're taking a couple college courses or learning for the fun of it. In light of recent news about a partnership between a California state school and an online education site, it's possible that because of the high cost of education, online learning could become the norm for college students.

Some of the best learning experiences we've had are in classrooms brainstorming and solving a problem as a group or trying to decipher the underlying meanings of poems. But many of us have had trouble keeping up too.

Abstract

"This study explores students’ choices of verbal and text interaction in a synchronous Live Virtual Classroom (LVC) environment that mixed onsite and online learners. Data were collected from analysis of recorded LVC sessions and post-course interviews with students in two different offerings of a graduate instructional design course that used Adobe Connect as a live virtual classroom. Students could choose whether to participate onsite in a computer classroom or “live” online using Connect. Over the course of both semesters students increasingly chose to participate online and, overall, students chose to participate online (57%) more than onsite (43%). However, some students—especially international students—preferred to participate onsite even though it was less convenient and also meant that they were more likely to be “called on” for verbal responses. Analysis of LVC recordings and post-course interviews showed that text interaction in which students asked questions or made comments in the LVC chat box during the instructor’s lectures was a preferred mode of interaction for students when they were participating both online and onsite. The emergent pedagogical strategy of integrated text interaction during lecture suggests a benefit of synchronous online learning."
