Community among University Students: An Online versus On-Campus Comparison
Olges, David Alan
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Regent University
In an attempt to determine the differences between the perceptions of a sense of community among online students versus on-campus students, the research surveyed 200 undergraduate students regarding their sense of relational affiliation with their university and, for some, with their small group. The results of the ANOVA indicated that students who participated in a small group reported a higher sense of community than the nonparticipant peers. Follow-up "t" tests indicated that there was no significant difference on sense of community scores based on gender, ethnicity, age, or years in higher education.
