Abstract

Multivariate statistical analyses were used to determine if there were differences in social community, learning community, and perceived learning between male and female students in 12 online graduate education courses in which female students (n = 162) outnumbered males (n = 31). Study results provided evidence that females felt more connected to other students in their courses, felt that their online learning experiences were more aligned to their educational values and goals, and perceived they learned more than their male peers. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
