Creating an Online Learning Community: Is It Possible?
Murdock, Jennifer L.; Williams, Amy M.
Innovative Higher Education, v36 n5 p305-315 Nov 2011
As institutions are moving towards offering more online and distance education courses, scholars have reported that instructors may have difficulty developing learning communities among students enrolled in these courses (DiRamio and Wolverton 2006). The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in students' perceptions of a learning community when enrolled in an online or on-campus introduction to counseling course. Participants were beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in pursuing a higher education degree in counseling. Results indicated no significant difference in students' perceptions of learning communities based on course format.
