Abstract: The basic question for research into online education is to understand what exactly contributes to the quality of learning. A considerable amount of resources has been invested to improve standards in education and computer literacy. Although the latter has been successful, on the whole, the quality of learning is elusive (Davis 1995). This remains the case today. The main purpose of this study is to research factors that enhance the quality of students’ online learning. As learning in an online virtual learning environment has both individual and collaborative components, this research has looked into the quality of the constituent elements and the relationship between them. The research has focused in particular on the effect of computer technology on quality of interactions, learner support, and course delivery.
