Creating an Effective Orientation for Online Students (Interactive Training Module)

Rating: 3.6/5 (13 votes cast)

As the number of programs and course offerings continues to increase, many students are taking distance education courses for the first time. More and more degree programs offer online courses as part of the curriculum; even entire degrees are conferred to students who never leave the virtual classroom. As institutions expand their distance education offerings are students being adequately prepared to succeed in the online environment? As evidenced by high attrition rates and poor academic performance, many of the students who have access to enroll in online courses are not prepared to succeed in those courses (Carr 2000).
