EurODL paper on Virtual Schooling through the eyes of an at-risk student

Monday, 30 January 2012

The latest edition of EurODL includes an interesting case study based on the experiences of an at-risk student in a rural school in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador enrolled in an online class. Although based on a single case, this study highlights a number of revealing results particularly when it comes to online collaborative and communication behaviour among students who tend to 'tune out' of virtual classroom activities. This paper is written and submitted by Michael K. Barbour and Jason P. Siko from Wayne State University, US.
