Effectiveness Of Traditional And Blended Learning Environments

Effectiveness Of Traditional And Blended Learning Environments: “Strickland discovered that there were few statistical differences between the effectiveness of a traditional course delivery method and a hybrid one.”
This is likely true, but context is always the critical factor. I’m increasingly distrustful of research that is generalized after only one or two studies and with small numbers of participants. In a research project I was involved with last year, I found significant differences in learner satisfaction in comparison to blended vs. face-to-face learning. Learners didn’t like the online portion. Why? Well, it was due to context: their expectations, the curriculum, their experience with technology, and numerous other factors. Context. Context. Context.
