Abstract

Lors du trimestre d’été 2004, une quarantaine d’étudiants du programme de B.A.A. de HEC Montréal se sont inscrits à un cours de politique économique de deuxième année donné sous un format en ligne à distance. La formule pédagogique retenue qui ne nécessitait aucune présence en classe offrait une gamme assez large d’outils et de ressources d’apprentissage dont une série de travaux pratiques à compléter avec le logiciel Excel. Contrairement aux conclusions rapportées par Brown et Liedholm (2002), Anstine et Skidmore (2005) et Coates, Humphreys, Kanes et Vachris (2004), une analyse des résultats obtenus à l’examen final montre que, à caractéristiques observables égales, les étudiants qui ont choisi le format à distance ont obtenu de meilleurs résultats que leurs collègues qui ont suivi le même cours en classe.
