Learning online comparison

  1. 1. S Learning Online A Comparison
  2. 2. Going to Class In a traditional class you meet at a specific time and place each week.
  3. 3. Going to Class In an online class, you access your course multiple times during the week according to your schedule.
  4. 4. Participating in Discussions In a traditional class you have class discussions and, sometimes, small-group discussions. These discussions happen during the class time and feedback is immediate.
  5. 5. Participating in Discussions In an online class, you have discussions in a written format (i.e. like Facebook comments or email exchanges) either as a class or in small-groups. These discussions happen over a period of time (usually a week) and feedback is not immediate.
  6. 6. Learning in Class In a traditional class your professor may lecture for a portion of the class and then have you participate in various activities (i.e. group projects, research activities, quizzes, tests, labs, demonstrations); sometimes you are a passive learner and sometimes you are an active learner.
  7. 7. Learning in Class In an online class your professor may ask you to read articles, watch short videos, and then have you participate in various activities (i.e. online discussions, web-site tours, quizzes, tests); like a traditional course, sometimes you are a passive learner and sometimes you are an active learner.

  11. 11. Submitting Assignments In an online class your professor gives you assignments to complete (i.e. papers, reports, journal entries) and then you submit them online as either file attachments, copy/pasted text, or via a specific tool in the course.
  12. 12. Taking Tests and Quizzes In a traditional class you take tests and quizzes during class time; these assessments are sometimes open-book or sometimes closed-book and can have many types of questions (i.e. multiple-choice, true/false, matching, essay, short answer). After taking the assessment, your professor evaluates them and returns them at a later date.
  13. 13. Taking Tests and Quizzes In an online class you take tests and quizzes via a specific and these assessments are usually open for only a short period of time, and they may also be timed, so once you start taking them you may only have one or two hours to complete them. After taking the assessment, you may receive a score immediately (i.e. if the assessment contained just multiple-choice and true/false questions) or your professor may need time to evaluate any written responses to questions.
