Originally posted by Andy Borchers: John - This article extends the predominate conclusion of research in the field - there is "no significant difference", other things held constant, between on-line and on-ground. I certainly can't argue.
However, are "all other things held constant" among the wide range of on-line and on-ground programs? Of course not! There are good on-line programs - and there are bad ones. The on-line aspect doesn't make a program good or bad - a host of other factors (like faculty, curriculum, incoming student quality, etc.) make the difference. On-ground programs are similar - some good, some bad.
Thanks - Andy
I agree. What I liked out the article was that some actual data was presented.
