What does virtual learning mean?
Virtual learning typically refers to a course that is completely virtual. Students receive instructional content, submit assignments, take tests, and interact entirely online, or virtual
Can virtual learning be as effective as in-class instruction?
Yes, it can be. Meta-analyses suggest that online courses are about as effective as face-to-face courses. Blended learning courses, however, tend to be the best of all, with the important caveat that students also tend to perform more work in blended learning courses.
Strengths of Online Learning
There are many reasons why online programs have become a popular form of distance learning in higher education today.
The main advantage of asynchronous online learning is that it allows students to participate in high quality learning situations when distance and schedule make on-ground learning difficult-to-impossible.
The Virtual Classroom is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Time efficiency is another strength brought by the online learning format
High Quality Dialog
Within an online discussion structure, the learner may reflect on comments from others before responding or moving on to the next item.
Within an online discussion, the individual student responds to the course material (lectures and course books, for example) and to comments from other students. Students usually respond to those topics within the broader conversation that most clearly speak to their individual concerns
Access to Resources
It is easy to include distinguished guest experts or students from other institutions in an online class. Further, today’s students have access to resources and materials that may be physically located anywhere in the world.
