Student Readiness for OL: How are You Preparing your Students to Learn Effectively?
Concurrent Session 5
To succeed in an online course, students need to be ready for the online learning activities, such as setting up study schedule, browsing course website, participating in online discussions, and submitting assignments. A free automatic advising system was developed not only to assess students’ readiness for taking an online course, but also to provide useful study strategies based upon their learning preferences. In addition, this system provides class profile for the instructor to view so that he or she can tailor his or her instruction to meet students’ specific needs.
