I'm going to rephrase my original request a bit. Let's try this: What are the problems or inadequate skills that cause students to be unsuccessful, to fail in online courses? Are there factors outside the realm of "traditional" study skills such as time management, reading level, etc. that subvert effective learning in the online environment? Thanks for responses.
