Abstract

Retention and engagement of online learners is critical to the success of every online learning program. The challenges are complex and often require a holistic perspective of the situation to identify and implement strategies that positively influence online learning experiences for students. First-time online students often present even greater challenges for learning institutions because these students have minimal experience with learning online and are often unaware of the available support resources. This paper presents the Inform, Equip, Connect Model for Engaging First-Time Online Learners and explores specific support and retention strategies used to engage first-time online students at the University of Central Oklahoma.
