Abstract

In New Zealand, students are increasingly taking subjects via virtual learning. Previous research has indicated that learner and support characteristics both play a role in determining the effectiveness of these forms of learning. This paper explores the experiences of two students who are involved in this form of learning. This exploration shows that students with a variety of characteristics can be successful at virtual learning, if they are provided with appropriate support.
