Establishing a Mentoring Plan for Improving Retention in Online Graduate Degree Programs
Truluck, Janet
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v10 n1 Spr 2007
As online distance education courses continue to increase in popularity for graduate programs it is becoming evident that retention issues are much greater in this format than in traditional face to face classes. Maintaining contact with students and overcoming feelings of isolation can be a major challenge for instructors and program coordinators. This paper describes an e-mentoring plan established for students in a Master's of Adult Education degree program with the purpose of maintaining enrollment while supporting students throughout their experience. The steps of the plan are described along with the rationale for each.
