Abstract

This study was grounded on the assumption that there is a correlation between online seminars and student attrition in online courses. This study empirically examined the extent of online seminar participation and student attrition. A quantitative path analysis and content analysis were used to conduct this study. The quantitative data analysis indicated that students participating in online seminars were less likely to withdraw from the teacher education program when timely and frequent online seminars were facilitated. Policy makers and online course administrators may achieve greater retention rates in online courses with online seminar support and a policy on clear expectations in participating in online seminars.
