Abstract

Over the last five years, there has been a significant increase in the number of students enrolled in online courses due to a number of factors, including: greater choice of programs and coursework; higher levels of comfort with the technology; and the inherent convenience and flexibility that online programs offer, especially for working adults. However, the lack of traditional lesson time constraints and direct face-to-face instructor interactions has fostered the often erroneous belief that online courses are "easier" than those offered onsite. This paper discusses problems that arise from this misconception, as well as practical solutions to counter them.
