Students Prefer Real Classroom to Virtual World

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The first comment has the best reaction: "Let's see. 15 students in an on ground class with no experience in virtual worlds decide they prefer an on ground class. What a surprise..." I would add that it is important to recognize that students, as a demographic, are very conservative, especially higher up in the system. These are the people who have adapted very well to the current system. Why would they support change? I've said this before, that the best test of online learning is with the many people (the majority, actually, and the less wealthy) that the current system doesn't serve.
