Benefits of Engagement with Peers, Faculty, and Diversity for Online Learners
Lundberg, Carol A.; Sheridan, Dennis
College Teaching, v63 n1 p8-15 2015
Using a sample of 812 students who were enrolled exclusively in online courses, this study investigated the extent to which engagement in various elements of the college experience contributed to their learning. A supportive learning environment was the strongest predictor of learning in all three domains measured in the study. Faculty feedback that prompted greater effort on the part of the student was also an important predictor of learning.
