Online Education

The US Department of Education has released a new study on online learning, described by Scott Jaschlik, “The Evidence on Online Education, Inside Higher Education, available at
http://www.insidehighered.com/layout/set/print/news/2009/06/29/online.
“The study found that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through face-to-face instruction. Further, those who took ‘blended’ courses -- those that combine elements of online learning and face-to-face instruction -- appeared to do best of all. That finding could be significant as many colleges report that blended instruction is among the fastest-growing types of enrollment.” This “meta-analysis” draws on “more than 1,000 empirical studies of online learning that were published from 1996 through July 2008”, using “a small number (51) of independent studies that met strict criteria.”

Ya i agree that online education makes performance of the students better than face to face instructions..

Individually they can learn with more concentration and can think alone about the particular topics..

They can also search about what they dont know much and make their concepts clear.

Online education must spread worldwide and seminars must be held at different places to make people aware about online education and take interest in that and suggest others too to go for online education..

Online Education will take you one step ahead without quitting day jobs.. It is a key to sucess..

Thanks
