Abstract

Several researchers argue that online learners should develop certain knowledge, experience, abilities and attitudes (or competencies) to gain the greatest benefit from their online studies and achieve high performance. The ibstpi Directors add to this discussion by specifying critical online learner competencies, following a rigorous research process. Fourteen competencies were clustered into three domains: personal, learning, and interaction, and further specified by 89 performance statements. Over 11 months, worldwide validation data were collected on the criticality of this set of competencies and performance statements. High reliability coefficients speak to the quality of the constructed set. Rank ordering of these competencies and performance statements and different perceptions between online learner and online learning providers and two major world regions offer important insights into which skills are necessary for engaging in a successful online learning experience.
