Issues in Offering Numeric Based Courses in an Online Environment
Mensch, Scott
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v3 Jun 2010
When developing online classrooms it is necessary to ensure that all learners will be successful in the course regardless of the topic or discipline that is being discussed. This becomes especially important when the class involves numerical data. This paper outlines the difficulty of delivering online classes such as algebra, accounting, and other courses that involve mathematical calculations. One of the authors of this paper currently sits on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) University Wide Distance Education Committee that has begun to look at their online course offerings in more detail. The intent of this paper is to identify if number based courses are more difficult to deliver in an online setting as compared to classes that do not involve math.
