    • Best Practices for Teaching Developmental Reading in the Virtual Classroom Leslie A. Salley, Baker College Online
    • Developmental students do not have the skills (reading, writing, computer, etc.) to complete an online course. Developmental students need more one-on-one attention and regular feedback than an online course can provide. Developmental students cannot have online discussions. Developmental students lose out on the social aspect of the classroom.
    • What are some other reasons developmental students cannot do the work online?
    • The US Department of Education’s recent report states that online education is just as effective a learning platform as face-to-face learning. http://www.ed.gov/rschstat/eval/tech/evidence-based- practices/finalreport.pdf http://www.league.org/blog/post.cfm/teaching-developmental- reading-with-hybrid-instruction http://www.league.org/league/projects/beo/
