|Title:||Comparing the performance of distance-learning and traditional students in a business simulation exercise||Contributor(s):||Kotey, Bernice Adei (author); Anderson, Phillip H (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4305||Abstract:||The performance of distant students in a simulation exercise for a Small Business Management (SBM) course was compared with that of internal students and the demographic and psychological variables associated with the performance of each student group were examined. Distant students matched or exceeded the performance of internal students in spite of the setbacks associated with distance learning. Work experience and rational information processing were associated with the performance of distant students but not with that of internal students. Distant students proved more able to achieve the multiple learning objectives of the course. Effective online interaction among students can help reduce the setbacks associated with independent learning for distant students and the work experience gap for internal students.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Industry and Higher Education, 19(1), p. 83-93||Publisher:||IP Publishing Ltd||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||0950-4222||Field of Research (FOR):||150314 Small Business Management||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||910402 Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/ip/ihe/2005/00000019/00000001/art00010||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 66
