Factors That Influence Transfer of Learning from the Online Environment
Everett, Donna R.
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n4 Feb 2010
In this paper the author discusses transfer of learning factors to enhance the work skills and knowledge of online MBA students in a managerial communications course. Qualitative research survey methods were utilized; nVivo 8 was used to manipulate the data in two areas: factors that enhance transfer of learning and when students began to apply the skills and knowledge in the course. The results show that the assignments, concepts, feedback, communications, and the instructor had an impact on learning and transfer of learning. One specific time (from the beginning) was mentioned when students began to apply their learning. The results of the study may be informative and instructive for other online instructors.
