Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the self-reported technology competencies of adult online learners and whether self-reported technology competence was related to students' intent to continue learning via web-based courses. The results indicated that there was no relationship between self-reported level of computer competence and intent to continue taking web-based courses. However, adult learners participating in the study indicated that they continue to struggle with completion of assignments and managing time when taking web-based courses, and that students want more technical training.
