Student Perceptions of Online Education
MetadataShow full item record
According to Watson (2011), during 2009-2010 school year 40% more students were enrolled in online learning than the year before. More specifically, 450,000 students across America were enrolled in virtual high schools. Despite this sudden push for online education, there is a shockingly high dropout rate (Barbour & Mulcahy, 2008; Journell, 2010; Marshall, & Pape, 2008; Rice, 2006; Roblyer, Davis, Mills). There has been extensive research done as to why students are taking online classes (Barbour, 2008; Barbour & Mulcahy, 2009; Oliver, Osbore, Patel, & Kleiman, 2009; Repetto, Cavanaugh, Wayer, & Lou, 2010) and how virtual schools can be improved to better meet their needs (Barbour, 2008; Barbour & Mulcahy, 2009; Chandra & Fisher, 2009; Clark & Berge, 2003; Rice, 2006;). To further explore the depth of this problem, it is important to take into consideration student perspectives of the same virtual school. The purpose of this research was to investigate the knowledge and perceptions of students who have, and have not, enrolled in online education
