A considerable amount of time is spent each semester by professors changing design and temporal elements of online courses to improve student satisfaction and performance (or is it just me?) In order to quantify what, if any difference these changes make to student outcomes, I am going to compare two versions of my PSY 101 online in Fall 2014. The content and requirements of the two courses is exactly the same. The differences between the two courses are strictly superficial (design elements, organization, structure, etc.) and unrelated to course content or student responsibility. If design matters (and I contend it does), this analysis should demonstrate a significant difference in student performance outcomes and/or satisfaction with the course. Semester and instructor are held constant to isolate the variables of interest.
