As part of my continued interest in the field of online learning, I focused my research proposal design in CEP 822 toward the affordances and hinderances of online learning. Toward this effort, I designed an empirical study to learn more about the relationship between online learning and student achievement to explore the theoretical aspects of my current passion in education. Specifically I wanted to address these questions:
- Does learning in online environments improve student performance in comparison to traditional learning environments?
- Do student attitudes toward, and accessibility to, online learning environments affect performance in online learning environments?
In the process, I hoped that answering these questions will help me address the following:
- Does my passion for online learning make it a successful practice for me as an individual teacher or is there an inherent advantage in online learning that actually improves learning?
