Research Proposal / Online Learning

Abstract

Do online homework management systems improve student learning? Do they work as well for adult learners in an online course? This natural experiment divided a sample of 2500 online students in an entry level university economics course into three treatment groups to look at the relationship between homework support and quiz scores. Group A got no homework support. Group B got simple Microsoft Excel templates. Group C got an online homework management system. Join us for this interactive session where we’ll discuss our findings and collect your ideas on how these findings might translate into practice.
