Student Perceptions of Online Distance Education in Undergraduate Agricultural Economic Programs

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 2007, vol. 39, issue 2, 10

Abstract: Undergraduate Food and Resource Economics majors and those with different majors were surveyed to determine the perceived advantages and disadvantages of distance and online education courses from a student perspective. Specific objectives included determining if students who have been exposed to more online courses are more likely to rate online education as positive or negative relative to the traditional classroom setting. In general, Food and Resource Economics majors tended to view distance and online education courses less favorably than did the others.
