Many studies have compared traditional face-to-face courses to online or distance education courses. The purpose of this study was to examine academic performance, perceptions, and experiences of participants enrolled in different academic learning environments. Pre and Post Content Knowledge Tests and a student evaluation were used to measure perceptions and experiences of participants. From the first result (perception), no significant difference (p greater than 0.05) was found between the two class formats in course evaluation, showing college students had similar perceptions regardless of class format. With the second result (experience), a significant difference (p = 0.031 less than 0.05) was found between the two class formats in self-evaluation, indicating participants in this study had better experiences from the traditional face-to-face class format.
