A study funded by the National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (Benson, Johnson, Taylor, Treat, Shinkareva, & Duncan, 2004) investigated the course structures and environments used for online career and technical education (CTE) courses and compared their effectiveness to equivalent campus-based courses in terms of the extent to which the students demonstrated the desired learning outcomes. The study encompassed five courses from three CTE degree programs at three different community colleges with a total of 112 campus students and 81 online students. Findings of the study are highlighted here along with recommendations for community colleges interested in providing online CTE courses. (Contains 5 tables.)
