This paper first describes the dilemma of online pedagogies. Then it reviews prior research in business courses about the outcomes of online instruction compared with traditional methods. Prior research suffers from various research methodology issues that are categorized. Subsequently, a pre/poststudy of over 200 undergraduate business statistics students is presented using one-sample and two-population tests to address the learning outcomes of instructional delivery. Overall, based on this sound research design, online instructional delivery resulted in learning outcomes, measured on three dimensions, that were found to be statistically equivalent to those of traditional delivery.
