Physical education and academic achievement in elementary school: American Journal of Public Health ;98 4: Timing of sexual debut and initiation of postsecondary education by early adulthood.
Online learning is important to increasing participation. However, a large proportion of new online learning entrants, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds drop-out, often early in the course.
Boosting participation by opening doors to previous non-participants is to little avail if it is a revolving door.
Reducing attrition is the most likely way to increase participation. That remote online learners are more likely to drop-out is entirely consistent with the theory that persistence is enhanced by social integration into the university community.
However, the construct has largely been operationalized in terms of full-time on-campus students.
There is a real need for qualitative research which seeks to better understand the issue from the perspective of remote online students. There is also a need to better understand the notion of academic integration for students who have not been high achievers and who come from backgrounds of low tertiary participation.
It is not clear how school leavers can adjust to the very different learning approaches required for online learning. The project aims to seek a better understanding of the constructs of social and academic integration from the perspective of remote and online students and those from a disadvantaged background.
