    • How do these practices and views affect your view of online courses?
  • 42.
    • Achievement and Self-Esteem Beliefs – Students require a high degree of self-motivation, and [they] must perceive that their success depends on their own contributions, rather than those of the course or teacher.
    • Responsibility/Risk Taking – Students have to take the initiative [to] complete tasks, even when all the information may not be given and the correct way to proceed may not be clear.
    • Technology Skills and Access – Students in on-line courses not only must be skilled at using on-line resources but also should have better-than-average access to them.
    • Organization and Self-Regulation – Even more than other academic activities, on-line environments seem to require students to have excellent organization and study skills.
