Adaptability to Online Learning: Differences Across Types of Students and Academic Subject Areas

CCRC conducts research on community colleges and contributes to the development of practice and policy to promote success for all higher education students.
Rosemary Tyrrell's insight:

Using a dataset containing nearly 500,000 courses taken by over 40,000 community and technical college students in Washington State, this study examines how well students adapt to the online environment in terms of their ability to persist and earn strong grades in online courses relative to their ability to do so in face-to-face courses. While all types of students in the study suffered decrements in performance in online courses, some struggled more than others to adapt: males, younger students, Black students, and students with lower grade point averages. In particular, students struggled in subject areas such as English and social science, which was due in part to negative peer effects in these online courses.




No one every said online learning was for everyone!

For students in remedial English at one community college, life hinges on small moments, and breaking points come at every turn.

 

Nobody wants to be here. In remedial English, earning no credit, stuck. Now—after months of commas, clauses, and four-paragraph essays—students have one last chance to write their way out.

A really good overview of the issues in Online and Distance Education. Prof Keppell explores the context, the enablers, digital literacies, personalised learning and user generated content. He raises questions about the skills students need to succeed and how we can assist students to manage the transition into digital life.

Raquel Oliveira's curator insight, March 10, 2013 6:35 PM

I do agree. We need learn how to learn on line.

The extremely rapid expansion of open educational resource (OER) initiatives and the millions of learners they attract can be understood as an indicator of an emerging revolution in education and learning. This article describes recent developments in this area and develops conceptual foundations for studies and policies on OER. We describe four different types of OER, locate these in a field of learning theories, and discuss how the wide adoption of OER may constrain and accelerate the transformation of learning and education in the knowledge society.

I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves.

Based on the concept of the customer survey, they have been taken public by a range of Web sites, most famously Rate My Professors.
