This study focuses on the learners’ planning habits and their effects on learning activities in e-learning courses that require self-regulation of learners. The authors explored the relationships between planning habit of learners, learning strategies and outcomes in asynchronous e-learning courses for adult learners. Two hypotheses lead from the findings in a former study on undergraduate students’ courses were tested. Hypothesis1: Learners that have planning habit built e-learning into their daily lives. This means they do not learn late at night or early morning. Hypothesis2: Learners with planning habit keep on studying on an average pace during the period of courses. As a result, these hypotheses were refused mainly due to the busy lifestyle of learners with planning habits.
