  • The First Zero Textbook CostCollege DegreeLinda Williams, Tidewater Community CollegeRichard Sebastian, Virginia Community College System
  • In the Fall of 2013, you can earn anA.S. in Business Administrationfrom Tidewater Community Collegewithout having to purchasea single textbook
  • “…students with lower levels of academic preparationexperienced significantly stronger negative coefficients foronline learning compared with their counterparts, in terms ofboth course persistence and course grade…These patternsalso suggest that performance gaps between keydemographic groups already observed in face-to-faceclassrooms (e.g., gaps between male and female students,and gaps between White and ethnic minority students) areexacerbated in online courses. This is troubling from anequity perspective: If this pattern holds true across otherstates and educational sectors, it would imply that thecontinued expansion of online learning couldstrengthen, rather than ameliorate, educational inequity.”http://ccrc.tc.columbia.edu/media/k2/attachments/adaptability-to-online-learning.pdf
