Online Courses as Effective Learning Environments or "Digital Diploma Mills": The Importance of Collaborative Learning: Online Courses as Effective Learning Environments or "Digital Diploma Mills": The Importance of Collaborative Learning Two views of Online courses: Two views of Online courses A means of cutting the costs of “delivering” educational materials to students, akin to previous use of instructional television. Post materials on the web; collect assignments; can handle thousands of students. OR: A means of improving the quality of learning opportunities, by supporting learning communities in an anytime/anywhere environment (Learning Networks “TLN” or “ALN”)- require small classes mentored by skilled faculty members Some Questions about “Differences” This Talk Will Cover:: Some Questions about “Differences” This Talk Will Cover: Is online collaborative learning superior to the mass distribution of materials via the Web? How do both models compare to traditional college level courses, in terms of process and outcomes? What are some guidelines for maximizing the quality of research to answer these questions? Background: Background Over the last 15 years, NJIT has constructed a series of computer-mediated communication systems tailored to support “anytime/ anywhere” interaction among students and instructors called “Virtual Classroom” [TM] Used first in a variety of individual courses and then for full degree programs; and Developed various evaluation instruments and approaches. Theories for Studying Online Courses: Theories for Studying Online Courses Pedagogical Theories: Objectivist (passive) vs. Constructivist (active, collaborative) learning Media Effect theories (e.g., Media Richness, Media Synchronicity) Group Interaction Theories (e.g., Adaptive Structuration; Poole & DeSanctis) …LN’s are a social technology through which a group may choose to faithfully or unfaithfully appropriate the structures provided by the technology, heuristic, environment, etc… Some VARIETIES OF COLLABORATIVE LEARNING :  Seminar: Students as Teachers Peer Writing Groups (Constructive Criticism) Group Projects Case study discussions Web “treasure hunts,” compilations Debates Construct an exam Networked classes Some VARIETIES OF COLLABORATIVE LEARNING The Research Process: The Research Process … a series of interlocking choices in which we try simultaneously to maximize several conflicting choices… Key choices generalizability with respect to populations realism for the participants precision in control and measurement of variables McGrath, 1982 Taking Online Classes is More Convenient (73% agree): 8 Taking Online Classes is More Convenient (73% agree) Did use of the system increase the quality of your education? (58% agree; +22% Same): 9 Did use of the system increase the quality of your education? (58% agree; +22% Same) Summary and Conclusions:: Summary and Conclusions: Each of the three NJIT studies has its methodological weaknesses, but taken together they solidly support the conclusions that 1.L N courses can be as effective or more effective than traditional classrooms, in terms of access and learning outcomes. 2. Collaborative learning designs are more effective for online learning than individuals working alone with materials posted online. Data from other universities replicate the findings. What’s the Difference? It’s the pedagogy, stupid!!
