The Public Policy Institute of California released a report Tuesday identifying successful online courses in the state’s community colleges. Success was defined as having at least 70 percent of students earning a passing grade, and if student performance is at least as good as face-to-face versions of the same course. The study also defined success as when students in an online course continue to do well in subsequent same-subject classes either online or in a traditional setting. The study found about 11 percent of online courses in 2013-14 were “highly successful” and they varied widely from one another. The courses were successful due to their design and the way they were delivered to students, although there wasn’t a systematic pattern in online course success.
