The author also indicates challenges that must be overcome in order to serve a diverse online student body. She also urges educational leadership to begin a dialogue on on-learning and communication styles, cultural competence in curriculum, academic preparedness, language barriers, and access to technology as they relate to success in the online learning environment.
