Student Support in Online Learning at Small Catholic Colleges

Barbara Wolf Shousha, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


The purpose of this study is to examine support for online learners in higher education programs. More institutions are offering online options due to the Covid 19 pandemic. While the pandemic affects all institutions of higher education, it is a particular challenge for smaller schools who have promoted personalized attention. The study seeks to identify best practices in institutional support for online learners and to evaluate such practices in selected small, Catholic institutions in the United States. The following research questions will be addressed: How are institutions offering quality support for online learners beyond the course experience? How do these offerings relate to current best practices in online student support?
