Abstract

The purpose of the study was to find what factors were perceived to be associated with students' perceptions of learning in online courses. Survey data were collected from students enrolled in 78 courses offered through the SUNY Learning Network in the fall of 1997. Correlation and multiple regression analyses were employed. The dependent variable was students' perceived learning that was correlated with eleven independent variables. Results indicated that the amount of student-instructor interaction and the online discussion activity played an important role in predicting students' perceived learning. The implication of this finding is that it is not only important to create an interactive environment for learning, but also important to design discussion activities that can trigger rich and meaningful online discourse.
