The main purpose of this study is not to compare online and traditional face-to-face instruction its purpose is to prove which one is better. Technological advancements presently go through society, changing the way that some courses are taught. It has become more understandable in higher education institutions that all classes are not as adaptive to an online format as others. Since many institutions of higher education further incorporate online courses into their curriculum, it is important to understand the characteristics of courses that affect students' preferences for either traditional classroom environments or online environments. Indications of this can be seen in the attrition and preservation rates of classes offered online. This study explores the characteristics of courses that affect students' preferences towards online and traditional classroom settings. These results should help in providing guidelines to institutions considering courses to offer online.
