A new study published in the journal Nature by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and University of California, San Diego, has found that online learning platforms can help students learn math, science, and engineering without the help of textbooks or other external resources.

In a study titled “Evaluating the impact of learning online from the perspective of the STEM fields,” the researchers looked at more than 2,000 STEM students who completed their college preparatory and post-graduate coursework in 2014 and 2015.

The results showed that STEM students, who were taught via a range of online resources, were much more likely to be successful in math, physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics, compared to their counterparts who had access to a textbook.

The researchers also found that STEM-focused learning platforms like Coursera and Khan Academy were able to help students improve their math and English scores at the end of the semester.

The students who used these platforms were able more quickly to improve their English scores than those who had to rely on textbooks or external resources for a certain portion of their education.

“We found that there were significant benefits to using a STEM-centric learning platform,” said the lead author of the study, Andrew Wysocki, a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie’s School of Information Sciences and Engineering and director of the Center for Computer Science Education and Learning.

“If you can find a platform that has a good reputation for providing high-quality content, you can make the most of the resources that you have,” Wysocksi said.

Wysocksia said his team is looking into how to improve the learning experiences that students can access through online learning.

In addition to helping them improve their mathematics, physics and chemistry scores, the researchers also hope to develop online learning tools for STEM majors, students who have been working toward a degree, and students with disabilities.

“There’s a big difference between the skills that you need to have to learn and the skills you need from a textbook,” he said.

The research is part of the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Initiative, which was launched in 2013 to provide STEM students with an alternative to traditional education.

The initiative has since grown to include research that focuses on robotics and robotics-related careers, as well as online education.

In 2016, the Robotics Initiative announced that it would partner with Courserah, an online learning platform that teaches courses in math and physics.

Courserach is available in more than 60 countries around the world and was acquired by Amazon for $970 million in August.

The team is now planning to continue their work by building an online curriculum to help STEM majors get a leg up on their peers and make the transition from high school to college.
