This research suggests that willingness to engage with others through electronic communication and a preference towards self-managed learning represent at least two important learner dispositional characteristics that may predict success with collaborative e-learning. This suggestion that important student e-learning preference characteristics include a willingness to participate in collaborative-learning, and a preference towards self-managed learning, is consistent with other work on students' learning preferences as they relate to flexible delivery and distance education. . The current paper will focus on the dispositional variables that influence student preferences for E-learning engagement.Research seeks to identify the relationship between individual student perceptions on effectiveness, accessibility, and preferabilty of E-learning courses.
