Andreé Robinson-Neal (Azusa Pacific University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-61692-906-0.ch052
As postsecondary online learning opportunities continue to expand and interest in such opportunities continues to increase, online course and program developers and instructors will more frequently be faced with students from culturally diverse backgrounds, students with educational and physical limitations, and students with socioeconomic barriers. This chapter will provide a review of existing research related to online education, including a discussion of the gaps in research as related to online postsecondary learning. An exploration of the issues related to providing online instruction to diverse populations of students who come to higher education with educational accommodation needs, as well as students whose many cultures have communication styles, expectations, and etiquette that may differ from person to person, is also included. The chapter concludes with suggestions for improvements as well as emerging trends in creating and maintaining equity in online course and program delivery.
