Description

We studied students perceived and actual learning in online versus in-person classroom environments. Participants attended a lecture that was either in person or on Zoom. After the lecture, they filled out a survey about perceived learning, and then completed a quiz over the lectured material. Results found no significant difference in scores from either environment, but the data was trending towards higher in-person quiz scores, as well as higher perceived learning for in-person environments. This is important in helping our understanding of classroom environmental effects on learning, specifically in higher education.
