Abstract

Abstract: Online math courses are usually less successful than traditional face-to-face math courses offered on campus, because of limited resources available to students and instructors. In 2008/2009 we offered an online math course with a new design and incorporation of recorded lectures, which significantly improved passing and completion rates. In this paper we show factors that contributed to the success of the online math course and we present results comparing the online course with a face-to-face counterpart. We hope that the paper will give ideas and encourage others to design and offer online math courses despite the limitations of cost efficient technology available to students.
