Read-Only Participants 1 The debate as to whether online community classrooms are an effective form of educating students versus traditional classroom teaching. As we progress through the informational and technological resources used within society we are faced with more and more opportunities of web-based learning. Some will rebuke the outcome and effectiveness stating the only way to succeed within an online course is through collaboration and involvement with your community of learners. How is online learning success measured? Researchers tend to measure success based on the student’s perception of learning (Nage l, Blignaut & Cronje, 2009,p 38). Perception of learning is greatly influenced by the motivating factor for learning and the mindset of the student. Those who perceive success will succeed in any classroom platform. According to researchers Bernard, Brauer, Abrami & Surkes, ”Dropout rates for online classroom teaching platforms range from 20 - 50% which is approximately 10-20% higher than traditional face to face classroom teaching platform” (Nagel, Blignaut & Cronje, 2009,p 38). Can we respectfully calculate success based solely on statistics or perception? A researcher known as Bernard felt “prior achievement” is the best predictor to future success (Nagel, Blignaut & Cronje, 2009,p 38).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
