Distance Learning Committee Reports

Fall 2001 through Spring 2008

(click here for full document)

"This report compares the retention and success rates of online, hybrid, and regular classes from fall 2001 through spring 2008. The study compared equivalent classes offered via distance learning with traditional on-campus classes offered in the same term. Traditional courses are considered regular (i.e., on-campus, in a classroom setting). Online courses deliver the majority of content via the Internet, while hybrid courses utilize a combination of in-class and online instruction.

Data for this study were compiled from ICCIS via the data warehouse for fall 2001to spring 2008. Courses that had at least one hybrid and/or online section were selectedfor the analyses and then, compared to equivalent courses offered on campus in thesame term. Regular courses were included only for the terms when an equivalent distancelearning course was offered. Retention and success rates were calculated by coursetype (method of instruction) for all terms."

Traditional on-campus courses are considered regular courses. Online courses are those in which the majority of course components are online, while hybrid courses utilize a combination of in-class and online instruction. Data for this study were compiled from ICCIS data via the data warehouse for the semesters fall 2001 through spring 2003. Courses that had at least one hybrid and/or online section were selected forthe analyses. A total of 44 courses with 1796 sections were included."

"In order to determine the retention[1] and success[2] rate of online[3] versus hybrid[4] courses, data were examined from fall 1999 through summer 2001[5]. If the course was also taught as a regular class[6], then it was also included in the analyses."

Overall, the data for this study are sparse and thus analyses and conclusion are limited. Data from this study were collected from a summarized report, thus minimizing most statistical analyses.
