Q

I am a college student from the Philippines, I happened to found your website and I just wanted to ask few questions. I was curious about how effective Distance Education is? Does it offer best teaching method compare to the traditional classroom learning? And how could virtual teaching develop the 3 domains of learning (the cognitive, affective, and the psychomotor skill)? These are all my questions. I look forward to your reply, thanks for reading this message and have a good day.

WOW, now that is quite a question.

OK, I am going to do my best to either answer this question, or direct to a resource that will have an answer to your questions. So, here we go.

1. To answer you question about the effectiveness of distance education, I am going to direct you to an article from the New York Times that discusses a recent study in which online education has shown to be better in many cases when compared to traditional education - Study Finds That Online Education Beats the Classroom.

2. Regarding the teaching method that is used in online education, there are a large number of studies for whether or not it is better or worse. The conscience for many is that online education is equal in tacking method to that of traditional, but it does take a specific type of person to succeed in online education. Here is a list of articles that will be of some help in your search for information about online teaching methods - Is Online Learning For You?.

3. As for this last question, I wish I was able to answer it, but to tell you the truth this is an very in-depth question, and one that could used as the topic of a Dissertation. So, what I am going to do is direct you to an article that might be of some use. Shift happens: online education as a new paradigm in learning. This article by Linda Harasim discusses the paradigmatic shift that is occurring in education with regards to online education.
