Jim Eckert from Western Michigan University shares his thoughts on online learning: "A funny thing happened on the way to the disaster that was supposedly on-line education, kids learned. A lot. In fact, my experience with on-line teaching and learning is that it often out-performs in-person delivered education. This summer session I taught my usual classes, but using the same assignments, applying the same standards, and carrying the same expectations, student performances and grades went up. It wasn’t grade inflation; it was performance inflation. It was the result of a better way to deliver what we teach via the on-line environment."
