Does Online Learning Really Work?

by | Apr 7, 2021 | All posts | 0 comments

Online-based education. This has been the scenario all across the globe since the Covid-19 Pandemic hit, in early 2020. But does online learning really work? Research says it does.

Whether you like it or not, online learning doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon – in fact, this modality has been garnering ever more advocates for its advantages.

The schedule flexibility inherent to online learning was unheard of, and the time saved by not needing to commute to school definitely allowed a lot of students to pursue other passions outside of the classroom. But more than that, researchers now tell us that it has been intellectually beneficial to the students. 

A National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE, 2008) study found that online learners reported deeper approaches to learning than classroom-based learners and experienced ―better use of higher-order thinking skills, integrative thinking, and reflective learning.

In the case of FH Online, our programs even allow international students to obtain a Canadian High School diploma from afar. That’s right – Canadian Education within reach, without having to move abroad.
