CASDA Sponsors Survey of Online Learning

May 18, 2015

Online course content and distance learning are becoming increasingly prevalent in a variety of educational settings. To better understand how online courses are being utilized in schools, CASDA worked with Education Development Center Inc. and the Northeast U.S. Rural Districts Research Alliance to facilitate a study entitled “Online course use in New York High Schools: Results from a Survey in the Greater Capital Region.”  This study identified trends in the kinds of courses being offered (i.e. credit recovery, electives, dual-credit college courses, etc.), how successful teachers believed these courses to be and obstacles to broader utilization of online learning.

 

Study authors Margaret Clements, Angela M. Pazzaglia and Jacqueline Zweig devised a series of questions aimed at detailing the role of online courses in high schools during the 2012-2013 academic year. CASDA administered the authors questions to ninety-nine member districts, essentially providing the study authors with a broad and diverse population for their survey sample. This engagement represents CASDA’s work as a convener, bringing together research projects with school districts in the field to broaden understanding of educational methodologies and drive toward the dissemination of best practices.

 

The Regional Education Lab is presenting a webinar on online learning and credit recovery on Wednesday May 27th.  For more information: http://www.relnei.org/events/online-course-use-credit-recovery.html
