My Reimagine Online Learning infographic points out several reasons why online learning is not reaching its full potential. Solutions to these problems will addressed in a future posting.
- Online learning often fails to provide students with social opportunities.
- Students often do not possess the basic technology skills necessary to successfully navigate within the learning management system.
- Online courses often lack connections to real world problems.
- Students often struggle to successfully manage their time in an online setting.
