Abstract
A case study of the academic performance of two groups of post-graduate students. Group A was taught by online mode and Group B taught by face-to-face method, by the same lecturer in a masters degree programme in educational administration, at the University of the West Indies, Kingston. The course-Theories of Organizations, is a one semester course usually offered in the first semester every academic session. The perfomances of the two groups of post-graduate students were compared in the mid-semester, end of semester and in the overall assessments. It was found that the online students performed better than face to face students in the mid semester assessment while face to face students performed better than online students in the final assessment. The final overall results of the course indicated a significant difference in the performance of both groups of student with Group B (face to face) having a better overall performance than Group A (online) in the end of semester and in the overall assessment. This paper also discussed the problems encountered by both groups of students, other problems identified by the course lecturer and the implications of all the findings for post-graduate education at the University of the West Indies, and in the Caribbean region.....
