Abstract

In the fall of 1999 students in the SUNY Learning Network completed surveys regarding their level of satisfaction and perceived learning in an entirely on-line learning environment. The goals of the research were to begin to build a profile of satisfied, successful students studying in this environment and to tie the research to theory. To generate hypotheses social learning theory was used as a conceptual framework. Data were collected from 1584 students, representing the largest study of on-line student attitudes to date. The data was analyzed using univariate analysis. Results indicated that a number of variables were significantly correlated with high levels of satisfaction and perceived learning. These included level of interaction with the instructor and classmates, satisfaction with the Help Desk, and satisfaction with the administration of the SUNY learning network. The report includes an explanation of the results relative to social learning theory.
