Crocker, R. (2007). Distance learning: Access and outcomes. St. John's, NL: Memorial University of Newfoundland. Retrieved on November 29, 2008 from http://www.mun.ca/killick/documents/TrendsReport_Draft2.pdf

A paper examining the effectiveness of distance learning in high schools and universities in Newfoundland and Labrador from three dimensions of access, learning outcomes and costs. Findings revealed there was an increasing enrollment in distance education, and a shift from teleconference to Internet-based formats. In high schools science and mathematics were the main distance enrollments and in the university business, psychology, sociology and education accounted for a large group. The findings also indicated that grades for high school students were lower in distance than in non-distance courses and the difference of school grades was considerably greater than for public exam grades. However, grades for undergraduates in distance versus non-distance courses were the same. Graduate students enrolled in distance courses in fall and winter semesters performed better, but results were opposite in spring semesters.
