As more and more of the coursework continued to shift toward digital, the data showed a clear trend: Not only were students in the online section performing the equivalent of half a letter grade better than those physically in attendance, but taking the class online also slashed the achievement gap between upper, middle and lower-middle class students in half, from about one letter grade to less than half of a letter grade.

“We are changing the way students are approaching the class and the way they study,” Pennebaker said.

An interesting post on online learning and how not all online education may be considered as a  MOOC.
