Finding the Critical Success Factors in Distance Learning
The Internet is providing the opportunity to deliver accessible, up-to-the minute material to anyone in anywhere. By using this tool, the industry can improve productivity in a collaborative environment. The initial investment in collaborated information sharing is paid off in a rather short time, leading to tremendous cost cutting and reduction in overhead. If the infrastructure is already setup, the conversion of a traditional delivery system into an online system is not very expensive. However, the issue of student performance in an on line system is important and complex. There are many factors that can contribute to the performance of the students. What are these factors? It is the thrust of this paper to identify the important ones.
Keywords: success factors in on-line courses, distance learning, Internet learning
