Melissa Wuellner, assistant professor at the University of Nebraska Kearney and a former faculty member at South Dakota State, studied natural resources courses online and face-to-face and found that online students spent more time on their classwork than the face-to-face students. She also found that grades in both online and face-to-face classes of the same course, which offered the same type of assignments, were comparable. “Mostly what we found was that students do about the same in both environments,” Wuellner said. Although research shows that academic rigor and grades are similar in both environments, online education still has its flaws — just as face-to-face classes do.
