Learning Strategies for Success in a Web-Based Course: A Descriptive Exploration
Hu, Haihong; Gramling, Jennifer
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v10 n2 p123-134 2009
Web-based distance instruction has become a popular delivery method for education. How are learning strategies helping make the connection between Web-based technologies and educational goals? The purpose of this study was to examine learners' use of self-regulated learning strategies in a Web-based course. Twelve students from an information studies online course participated in a semistructured survey about their learning strategies. The content analysis of the survey responses revealed that self-regulated learning strategies in traditional situations could be identified in students' online learning. Participants' responses also indicated that they considered goal-setting/time- or effort-management and cognitive strategies the most helpful ones for them to perform successfully in the course. This article may offer insights to instructors and designers of the distance learning environment, and also provide suggestions for future research. (Contains 1 table.)
