We report results from an analysis that assesses the effectiveness 
of teaching political science courses online. We look at three questions: 
How can the Internet effectively enhance student learning? What are the 
effects of online teaching on gender equality in political science classrooms? 
And how does participation in online discussion affect student learning? 
We find that active learning is possible online, that women benefit from 
online learning, and students overall do better when they read postings in 
online discussions.
