Adults Contemplating University Study at a Distance: Issues, Themes and Concerns.
Bird, Jenny; Morgan, Chris
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, v4 n1 Apr 2003
On-campus and distance adult learners (n=20) related the experience of their enrollment decisions, uncovering six themes: fears, motivation, family support, academic preparedness, suitability of programs, and identity change. Motivation was the key to persistence. Preentry information, guidance, and preparation for prospective adult open and distance learners could assist informed enrollment decisions. (Contains 24 references.) (SK)
