A recent study conducted by the US department of education concluded that digital learning, most specifically online learning, produced better results in learners than live classroom training.
The research, which can be found at ed.gov was gathered from over 1000 studies conducted over a 12 year period. While it has been long suspected that eLearning had better results than classroom training alone, it was discovered that a blend of classroom and elearning did no better than elearning alone.
“The studies of more recent online instruction included in this meta-analysis found that, on average, online learning, at the post-secondary level, is not just as good as but more effective than conventional face-to-face instruction..” said Marshall “Mike” Smith, a Senior Counselor to the secretary of Education.
