Abstract

This paper presents the findings of a qualitative study conducted on a graduate level, online course. The online course introduced participants to the world of online learning. Research has shown differences in online learning between men and women. This study was undertaken to illuminate women's ways of knowing in an online setting. Through a series of interviews of three women who are self-proclaimed older learners, the study hopes to provide a guide for instructors as well as for older, female students who utilize online learning for advanced degrees.
