This study will be comparing the student perspective of online classes and on-campus classes from three different student groups, undergraduate, MBA on-campus and MBA consortium students, in an attempt to answer the question “When given the option, why do students choose an online class versus an on-campus class and do these reasons coincide with perceptions of course effectiveness?” As universities expand their class offerings in hopes to entice more students to their campuses, they need to understand what students are looking for; understanding students’ perceptions of the value of online and on-campus classes will help guide universities as they continue to expand into online class offerings as well as understand each type of student.
