Frequently Asked Questions
Does an online format offer an education of an equivalent standard to a traditional format?
Yes. Numerous studies have shown that online students perform equally well as or better than their counterparts on-campus. Thomas L. Russell’s study The No Significant Difference Phenomenon (2001, IDECC, fifth edition) cites 355 research reports, papers, and summaries from as far back as 1928 that found no appreciable differences between online and in-person learning.
