Widely embraced as a complement to traditional classroom learning, online learning programs now have more than 5 million students enrolled in at least one digital course, according to a 2015 Babson study. Since 2012, online enrollment has experienced an average 3.7 percent year-over-year enrollment
With the majority of IT programming students just doing their own thing in the classroom at Kaplan University, David DeHaven – the dean of the university – wanted to change that, and find a way to improve student engagement and have them work more collaboratively.
"The results showed a significant positive relationship between classes that used collaborative activities and engagement levels. However, the coded responses of the participants showed that while classes that use such activities had higher levels of engagement, it is possible that this may be attributable to other factors external to the formal elements of collaboration in the course. Recommendations are offered for future research that may help identify the elements that contribute to engagement in online courses."
"Student engagement can be thought of as the amount of time and effort college students put into their courses. Engagement is positively related to high grades, student satisfaction, and persistence. In the classroom, student engagement is measured in four different categories: Academic Challenge, Learning with Peers, Experiences with Faculty, and Campus Environment (NSSE, 2015). In the online environment, students engage in similar ways, and in general are as engaged (and sometimes more engaged) than campus-based students. The four categories below will explain how to design your online course to encourage these four types of online engagement (Chen, Gonyea, & Kuh, 2008)."
When Sheri Litt became dean of arts and sciences at Florida State College’s Open Campus, one of her priorities was to address the issue of online learner satisfaction and success. “We started looking at the data,” Litt says. “We looked at students’ comments on surveys to find out what they were disappointed with in their online courses. And a lot of comments [said, in essence,] ‘I felt my instructor didn't care’ or ‘I felt my instructor would just log in once every six weeks’ or ‘It would take a
