Factors That Affect Students' Capacity to Fulfill the Role of Online Learner
Journal of Education for Business Volume 90, Number 3, ISSN 0883-2323
Because most undergraduate students are digital natives, it is widely believed that they will succeed in online courses. But factors other than technology also affect students' ability to fulfill the role of online learner. Self-reported data from a sample of more than 200 undergraduates across multiple online courses indicate that students generally view themselves as having attributes that equip them for online learning. Additionally, course-level factors affect students' online learning experiences. Specifically, students in qualitative (vs. quantitative) courses and in introductory (vs. advanced) classes reported more positive perceptions of their online learning and various aspects of their coursework.
