Abstract

Preservice teachers are taking more online courses in the teacher preparation programs in recent years. It is critical for the teacher educators to understand whether their students are ready for learning online in order to assist them to achieve success. This study examined students’ readiness of online learning by using an Online Learning Readiness Self Check (OLRSC) tool. The comparison of students in different stages of a teacher education program revealed that the newly admitted preservice teachers could benefit from resources regarding effective online learning. Even though they perceived that they mastered learning skills such as monitoring their own progress and regulating their efforts, additional support in technology management and goal setting were imperative.
