Abstract

As the web-based synchronous and asynchronous learning environments are used by many schools to deliver courses, the need for the systematic impact evaluation of these new learning environments of learning outcomes becomes more significant. This paper presents an analysis of synchronous and asynchronous learning based instructions that were used for graduate courses for both on-campus (full time) and off-campus students (distance learning). The paper presents preliminary findings about learning outcomes of students in these information systems courses. The study although is limited to one schools but findings could contribute significantly to generalizability to other institutions.
