Exploring views on learner orientations and their impact on support and community in online synchronous undergraduate programs
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this research project is to assist in filling the void that currently exists around orientation initiatives for online learners in two fully synchronous online programs. This study investigates the view of participants in these programs to determine a sense of learners' and faculty members' opinions and insights on how to meet the needs of learners at the onset of their learning journey. Understanding possible delivery methods, content and structure of an orientation program for these online programs may assist incoming learners in building a foundation for academic success and to understand how this will build and facilitate a stronger online community and network of learners.
