I graduated from Michigan State University with a grade-point average a shade above a 3.0.
I lived on campus my entire time as an MSU student and I really enjoyed living in East Lansing.
But I’m performing much better, grade-point wise, as a graduate student in the Eastern Michigan University Education Media and Technology online program. Sure, I don’t have as heavy a course load as I had as an undergrad, but I feel I am given more time to complete tasks. It also feels to me like I’m retaining more information that I will be able to use in the future.Since I started the EDMT online masters program in August 2011, I’ve often wondered why there hasn’t been a push for more online instruction at the high school level? I don’t think online instruction could be implemented at any lower level, simply because I believe children in grades K-8 are still developing other skills (social, motor, etc.).
But could online instruction work with high school students?
