The Diverse Knowledge Accessing Modes of First-Year Distance Students.
Fraser, W. J.; Nieman, M. M.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v10 n2 p185-98 1996
A survey of 2,071 first-year students in university distance-education programs found the two most common learning strategies were repetitive reading of course materials and summarization of facts. Wide variation in strategies was found, apparently determined by both learner characteristics and nature and design of instructional materials, including language use. A tendency to depend on rote learning was found. (MSE)
