Abstract

This paper is based on the results of eight semesters of an action research study about student perceptions of a blended, flipped instructional strategy used in an undergraduate education course. Learner characteristics that were found to be major barriers to successful learning were lack of self-discipline and time management skills, students beliefs about the learning process, comfort level in using technology for learning, and less interaction with the teacher. The types of scaffolding that the authors provided to address these barriers and help students become more successful online learners are discussed.
