- Distance education,
- online students,
Distance education provides many nontraditional students with the opportunity to pursue a college education not possible through traditional brick and mortar education. Although not meeting face-to-face, a solid developmental curriculum and academic resources help promote a stronger connection between the classroom and student community. This presentation will discuss strategies for motivating and retaining online students. Topics include: the role of assessment and academic readiness; the role of strong developmental curriculum and faculty in promoting student success; and the use of an online Resource Center for enhancing student engagement, providing academic support, and promoting collaborative activities.
