Abstract

This study examined adult students' progress in a competency-based online graduate program and their performance in various types of learning opportunities. Learned lessons and effective strategies were summarized. Students valued interaction with instructor as an important factor in online learning. New students had a better success rate in instructor-led online courses than in independent-study online courses. Adult students need modeling and scaffolding to be successful in an online environment.
