Exploring students' readiness for online learning

Susan Greener

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


This research set out to discover why some Higher Education (HE) students adapted very quickly to online environments and showed excellent learning behaviours and outcomes, while others found many barriers to the same activity. Given the rapid spread of virtual learning environments (VLEs) in HE Institutions, HE teachers need clear ideas about how to prepare and support learners in these environments. If individual differences among students could be identified, which affected “readiness” for learning online, then this information could be used to develop appropriate support and prevent such differences working to disadvantage groups of students.
