The study examined two things in relation to web based or non-web based teaching.
The two things examined were problem solving ability, and biology achievement. Tests given to two groups of students indicated what was happening with each group. One group received online learning only. The other group learned in an offline environment.
Tests applied to the information showed that the web based students did better. They recalled the information longer after having learned it.
They also remained better at problem solving longer after the end of the experiment. This just goes to show that online learning could be the way of the future.
