Abstract

Critics of distance learning contend that students come to these venues expecting less and receiving less, all in the name of convenience. This presentation will share findings from a research study that examined the impact of students' desire for convenience on their assessment of their learning experiences. These findings suggest that, contrary to the commonly-held perception, students who identify themselves as seeking convenience in their learning are not less demanding than students in regular classrooms, and they are not selling their souls to the academic devil.
