Abstract

No matter how well designed a course is, students will not learn unless they put a reasonable amount of effort into the learning process. A problem for many students and educators is in determining exactly what a reasonable amount of effort is. Many studies have focused on the issue of attendance, documenting a clear link with success. However, in the age of e-learning new conceptions and measures of participation and effort are required. This paper will present data comparing measures of student effort with student success on an online course. The findings are discussed in relation to the possibilities for improving automated feedback mechanisms for students, instructors and advisors.
