Students who use online learning can take in information faster than those who only take part in classroom-based sessions, new research has indicated. A study conducted by non-profit think tank Ithhaka S+R used two versions of a statistics course to compare the effectiveness of the two different forms of learning, reports. One group of students received only face-to-face teaching, while the other was only allocated an hour with their lecturers and spent the remaining time being taught online. The latter group were seen to learn faster and Ithaka adviser and chancellor of the University System of Maryland William Kirwan said online learning has the potential to be a “model that can totally change the teaching and learning process while lowering costs”.
