As Distance Education Comes of Age, the Challenge Is Keeping the Students.
Carr, Sarah
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n23 pA39-A41 Feb 11, 2000
Reports that anecdotal evidence and studies by individual institutions suggest that course completion and program retention rates are generally lower in distance education courses than in their face-to-face counterparts. Suggests some of the causes may be that distance students are often older, have more obligations, or that lack of face-to-face contact is not effective with some learning styles. (DB)
