The problem statement will be is online learning as effective as classroom learning. This is also the research problem. In addition add an abbreviated literature review of about two to three peer reviewed journals, a research proposal with a theoretical rationale for the proposed study. In addition add a purpose statement and one or more research question. Finally add a research design/methodology. Included in design is a source (probably grad students), sampling procedures (probably e-mailed survey with questions), and finally the variables of the quantitative study.
