USA Today College reported on a research project that I participated in along with Dr. Cassandra Hart and Elizabeth Freidmann about the impact of online community college courses in California. A link to the article can be found here: http://college.usatoday.com/2015/05/22/study-online-community-college-courses-found-to-be-ineffective/. We were actually quite careful in our paper, and the subsequent presentations at AERA and NBER, to avoid the implication that the courses were ineffective. There is still a lot to learn about online education in general, and we recommend against jumping to any hasty conclusions!
