Abstract

The recent economy in the U.S. and the resulting employment problems have sent many students back to school to change careers or to further their existing career by engaging in graduate studies. Today’s online students are varied: some are born in a media-rich, networked world; others have grown into it. How does this affect their performance as online students, particularly those in graduate classes with a mix of generational influences? The efficacy of providing varying generations of students with a self-assessment of their learning strategies and distractions in an online environment will be presented and discussed in this session.
