A study published by the U.S. Department of Education has shown that e-learning is more effective than face-to-face classroom learning. The systematic review of 99 quantitative studies comparing e-learning with face-to-face teaching found that e-learners averaged in the 59th percentile at the end of their course, compared to the 50th percentile for classroom learners. The difference between the two groups was statistically significant. Luddites repent, technophiles rejoice!
