Abstract

Examines factors affecting the success of asynchronous online learning both through a review of the research and through an empirical investigation of student perceptions and course design factors in one of the largest asynchronous learning networks in the United States. Reveals that three such factors-consistency in course design, contact with course instructors, and active discussion-have been consistently shown to significantly influence success of online courses.
