Online Education of Older Adults and Its Relation to Life Satisfaction
Dorin, Michelle
Educational Gerontology, v33 n2 p127-143 Feb 2007
The purpose of this research was to study the effect of participation in online education on the life satisfaction of the older adult. Life satisfaction was assessed by scores obtained using questions the from Nuegarten, Havighurst, and Tobin (1961) Life Satisfaction Index-A (LSI-A). Other data was obtained using demographic and procedural questions. Raw data suggested that participation in online education can, in fact, increase life satisfaction. However, when results were tested significance was not determined. An implication of the research is that older adults are positively impacted by even minimal exposure to online education.
