Online Adult Students and Predictors of Success

Many adult learners are choosing to take online classes in conjunction with their face-to-face classes (or exclusively online classes). This is an exciting opportunity for both colleges/universities and adult learners. However, some of these adult learners experience both barriers and supports when pursuing their degrees.

Recently, I discovered a great literature review focused on adult online learners, "Predictors of Success for Adult Online Learners: A Review of the Literature". This literature review focuses on adult online learners and the predictors of their success. I am very interested in this topic because I will teach two online courses in the fall semester. I hope to provide these online students with ample opportunities to overcome potential barriers they may encounter in the online educational process.
