Interactive Online Learning Produces Learning Outcomes on Par with Traditional Teaching Methods

By Leila Meyer

Hybrid teaching methods that combine interactive online learning with limited classroom teaching produce equivalent learning outcomes to traditional classroom teaching methods, according to new research released recently.

The report, Interactive Learning Online at Public Universities: Evidence from Randomized Trials, found that when students completed an introductory-level statistics course using an ILO system, along with one hour each week of classroom instruction, their scores on a standardized test of statistical literacy (CAOS) administered before and after the course showed equivalent gains to scores from students who completed the same course through traditional classroom teaching methods only.
