Can Students Learn Faster Online?
Yesterday, I was on WBUR’s RadioBoston with Matthew Chingos, discussing his new study about online learning in higher education. Matt’s study involved recruiting several hundred Introductory Statistics students at several college campuses who were willing to be randomly assigned to either a regular class or a hybrid online class. In the hybrid online class, students took an online version of Intro Statistics mediated entirely by a computer, with online readings, quizzes, activities and so forth. They also met once a week for a discussion section to answer questions.
