A statewide study of 30 SUNY community colleges found that, overall, students who successfully completed online courses nearly doubled their chances of earning a degree or transferring to a four-year college. However, racial minority students had reduced outcomes. As reported in the study published recently in the Online Learning Journal, the current thinking holds that “some students” do worse when they study online compared to when they attend face-to-face classes.   The results, developed by Peter Shea at SUNY’s University of Albany, and Temi Bidjerano at South Carolina’s Furman University pulled data from 45,557 students attending community colleges for the first time in New York between fall 2012 and fall 2017.
