For instructors and administrators of traditional classroom and distance learning courses alike, the leading indicators of success for college courses remain the retention and academic achievement of students. While technologies have changed many aspects of both how students study in college and how college courses are taught, the metrics of persistence and performance continue to be used by institutional decision-makers in defining success. As a result, in order to maximize our success as online instructors, we can and should work to ensure that our students have the study habits and learning skills necessary to be accomplished e-learners. Not only do such skills improve the odds that online students will be successful academically, but they also increase the likelihood that they will continue to enroll in future online or on-campus courses.
