Distance Learning: College Studentsí Perspectives
	Rochelle Matthews-Somerville, Bowie State University, MD

This study examined relationships between student characteristics 
and perceptions of distance learning.  One hundred thirty-one university 
education majors from 5 classes participated in this study.  A self-report 
measure of factors that contribute to the successful implementation of 
online courses was administered.  Analyses revealed that individual student 
characteristics were significantly related to perceptions of distance 
learning.  The implications of differences in perceptions based on 
characteristics and classroom performance are discussed.
