Teaching Public Finance Administration Online: A Case Study.
Journal of Public Affairs Education, v5 n3 p237-46 Jul 1999
A case study of an online masters course in public finance administration, conducted primarily through texts and electronic bulletin boards with no face-to-face contact, found advantages (time and space independence) and disadvantages (lack of interaction with instructors) for both faculty and students. Although student grades equaled those in traditional classes, students did not feel they had learned as much. (DB)
