Student Retention in Online, Open, and Distance Learning
By:Ormond Simpson
Published on 2003 by Psychology Press

Student retention has become a key issue for all further and higher education institutions and is a major concern among those involved in online learning courses where retention rates are often even poorer than those for traditional campus-based courses. There is increasing recognition that student retention is the responsibility of the actual institutions running the courses, and that it is within their power to encourage sustained participation without compromising academic standards. In this book, Ormond Simpson provides a clear, accessible analysis of what works and at what cost. He outlines strategies for increasing retention, providing useful case studies and examples to illustrate how these strategies can change institutional policy and practice. Areas covered include: * Who drops out and why * Integration * Reclamation * 'Retentioneering' an institution * Recruitment and retention * Course design.
