Different values

Is there a difference in the value of online learning compared to learning in a classroom? A recent report seems to think so, note the figures highlighted in the article below;
College Presidents, Public Differ on Value of Online Learning pewresearch.org article.

Like most things, it depends on who you ask. Of course the people involved will have their own views. The article also quotes figures about the difference in view of those who have undertaken an online course compared to those who don’t. Again there is an obvious difference. In reality, is it what you get from the learning, however it is delivered, that counts? Martin Börjesson made a comment about this on his blog.

The above article refers to the full report, which can be accessed at;
