Face-to-Face versus Online Coursework: A Comparison of Costs and Learning Outcomes
Herman, Terry; Banister, Savilla
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v7 n4 p318-326 2007
This study documents the transformation of a graduate-level course for teachers that had traditionally been taught in a face-to-face (f2f) model, in multiple sections, at a large university. By designing the course for online delivery and developing various interactive multimedia modules, the university was able to offer the course at a considerable savings while maintaining quality. The faculty worked in close collaboration, strategizing creative solutions to maintain the academic rigor and integrity of the course. Student papers and projects were analyzed and compared from both the f2f and online versions of the course to determine academic quality and learning outcomes.
