The purpose of this paper was to determine whether applying e-learning material to a course leads to consistently improved student performance.
This paper analyzes grade data from seven instances of the course. The first three instances were performed traditionally. After an intervention, in the form of applying e-learning methodologies, more data were collected from four course instances. These data are then analyzed and compared.
The main finding of this paper is that the application of e-learning improved the overall grades and decreased the fail rates of students who took this course.
This paper demonstrates the efficacy of applying e-learning methods to an undergraduate course. This paper is of special interest to educators, who wish to improve and enhance their teaching.
