Abstract

This paper describes a study being conducted on a graduate level on-line distance education course at an African university, which aims to explore the relation of trust and performance in such environments. This line of research builds on the belief that the trust that students put in their on-line teachers is the common denominator of several related problems such as motivation, retention, technology difficulties, the need for interacting and communicating with the participants and the need for a trustful ODL setting. The research focus is based on understanding the relation between performance and trust in an on-line distance learning setting. It involves an analysis of whether trust and performance have any relation, based on the student perspective, when studying at a distance. The scenario selected to perform this research is web base on-line distance learning.
