Research In Online Learning
A substantial body of research validates the quality and effectiveness of online learning. The landmark U.S. Department of Education study about online learning provides a meta-analysis of all rigorous studies of online learning from 1996 to 2008. The research provides evidence that students in online learning performed better on average than those taking the same course through traditional face-to-face instruction. This important study and the growing body of research on the growth of online learning, its effectiveness as measured by student outcomes, its impact on instructional design and delivery, and its cost effectiveness are provided below in Research on the Effectiveness of Online Learning:
