Online Learning Experience: A Case Study 

This paper reports the results of a case study on college studentsí perception 
of their online learning experience. Statistical analysis reveals different 
perceptions between native English speakers and Asian students, whereas gender 
and prior online experience do not affect student perception. The results of 
this study reveal different rating patterns that could bias the assessment of 
learning effectiveness when educators continue to resort to aggregate measures. 
We suggest further studies to measure the cultural influence on student ratings 
and to devise a method to adjust for this difference.
