Widespread availability of computers and the Internet provide considerable enrichment in terms of variety of material and formats for presentation over what was possible with the old correspondence courses. As a result, a large number of universities have begun to offer an extensive list of online courses in various programs. We set out to answer the question about student satisfaction with online distance learning by surveying the undergraduate and graduate students taking online courses in the College of Liberal Studies of the University of Oklahoma. The survey was sent to a total of 767 students who had participated in an online course lasting either 8 or 16 weeks in the College of Liberal Studies at the University of Oklahoma. Students were contacted and requested to participate in the survey at the end of each 8-week and 16-week course. A total of 304 students participated in this survey producing a participation rate of 40%. Overall the results of this survey indicated that the students were very satisfied with the format, the nature and amount of the work required, as well as with the assessment of their work and grading.
