Online Classes Increase Likelihood Of Multitasking


Taking online classes may mean an uptick in multitasking.

Research conducted in Kent State University reveals students multitask more frequently when taking online courses compared to face-to-face classes.

The study surveyed 296 college students, each participant completed an online course as well as a traditional class.

Researchers examined the students’ distracting behaviors including texting, using social networking apps, emailing, off-task internet surfing and found students are more likely to multitask in an environment without a physically present teacher and the presence of other students.
