Abstract

The student and the instructor may view success in the online environment differently. The focus of this paper is to report those characteristics of online learning that students indicated as facilitating or challenging to their success. The data reported in this study is part of an ongoing study of adult learners' perceptions of useful and challenging characteristics of the online classroom. To guide this research, two primary research questions were investigated: 1) What components of online learning environments do students recognize as helpful in the learning process? and 2) What components of online learning environments do students identify as challenging?
