Is “High Quality” Online Project-Based Learning a Contradiction?

This research paper explores questions such as:

Is there a correlation between online training and lower completion rates?


Does a higher proportion of online training result in lower student satisfaction?

Can cost to deliver be tied to program outcomes?

To equip students with the skills and capabilities they need to succeed in the future of work, educators seek to deliver a range of project-based learning programs around the theoretical curriculum.

Project-based learning with high proportions of in-person engagement can be complex and costly for education program managers to deliver at scale.

Team projects where students apply their knowledge to address real problems posed by employers are a significant and fast-growing part of the equation.

Online team projects potentially offer educators substantial benefits including lower cost, broader geographic reach and enhanced scalability, but only if quality can be maintained.
