Abstract

This paper presents findings from two E-Learning studies conducted at New Jersey Institute of Technology. The first, a large-scale quasi-experimental study, centers on student performance in E-Learning and traditional courses offered within the College of Computing Science. The second, a small-scale case study, centers on student performance in an E-Learning course in world literature. Although the content of the courses rests in different disciplines, similarities in student performance are identified regarding academic preparation and perseverance of students. To provide a framework for interpretation of these results, the authors turn to literary criticism and the interpretative framework of irony.
