Abstract

The consensus of studies of undergraduate principles of economics is that the online format is inferior to the traditional lecture format. This study contributes to the literature by employing a research design that appropriately handles sample selection bias and by using a fixed effects model to correct for bias from unobservable variables. The results are that the effect of the online format on learning outcomes is not significantly different from that of the traditional format. JEL Classification: A2, A22 Key words: educational economics, online instruction
