Abstract

Institutions of higher education are facing many tough questions as to how best to address lower on-campus attendance and budgetary concerns. Many scholars believe the answer lies in distance education. This chapter begins with the description of online learning, online course philosophical approaches, and online course design models that have arisen in higher education in some part to the need to increase revenue. Next, the authors address student preferences and perceptions of online learning, specifically, adult learners and perceptions and preferences of online learning as they relate to teacher interactions/teaching loads/demands. Finally, they propose a solution to the identified key problems.
