Abstract

This research study explores which components of a student pre-course orientation contributed most to the student’s successful completion of their online course, specifically focusing on high school supplemental online programs. An online survey was conducted of a sample group of students taking one or more online supplemental courses through the INFINITY Online program. Students were asked to rank the variables in terms of effectiveness to their overall success. Survey results indicated that the components offered in the online program’s pre-course orientation are effective in preparing supplemental students for success as they begin their online course experience. Specific components such as expectations and traits of successful online students, communication, progress and program guidelines, and targeted dynamic learning activities were reported as most helpful unit overall.
