World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 3279–3284
Abstract: This presentation will combine the findings from four studies that investigated the relationship of student background variables and online behaviors to student persistence and achievement in the online environment. Over 500 students...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2006 (June 2006) pp. 1595–1599
This research examines the types of assistance faculty requested during the implementation of asynchronous, online, core curriculum courses via the University System of Georgia (USG). The course management software used was WebCT Vista, and support...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2006 (June 2006) pp. 399–405
Distance learning, especially online learning, is becoming pervasive in contemporary higher education. In response, since the mid-1990s nearly every state has established state- or system-level virtual universities to provide service (student...
New Directions for Higher Education Vol. 146 (2009) pp. 45–54
The purpose of this study was to understand the consortial approach to distance education at the state level, with a focus on examining the way three state-level virtual universities engaged colleges and universities in participating in distance...
Innovative Higher Education Vol. 32, No. 1 (June 2007) pp. 35–47
Developing a course for online instruction requires content knowledge and understanding of the interactivity, technological requirements, and possibilities in the asynchronous environment. Using a case study method, the researchers investigated the...
Differences by Course Discipline on Student Behavior, Persistence, and Achievement in Online Courses of Undergraduate General Education
Journal of College Student Retention Vol. 10, No. 1 (2009) pp. 39–54
This research empirically examined student behavior in online courses and its relationship to persistence and achievement across fields. Eight variables descriptive of student behaviors online were measured for 1) frequency and 2) duration of...
