The article highlights the findings of a study that examined business student perceptions of college-level online courses. A Likert-type scale was used in the study to indicate whether online courses were more or less difficult than regular classes, whether they provided poor or good learning experiences, and whether students were happy or unhappy that they had taken an online course. The study found that online courses are part of higher education's future.
