Abstract

Online education is seen as a way to provide new options for students and potential new enrollments for institutions. In examining online and on-campus enrollments and student performance in undergraduate communications classes, this study found there is a degree of displacement as some on-campus enrollments move online. However, class sizes tend to be smaller in online sections. In addition, while there was no difference in mean section GPAs between online and on-campus courses, online classes saw a higher percentage of student non-success in failures, withdrawals and incomplete grades.
