Online learning has proved to be a major adjustment for many students. There have been both positive and negative experiences that students have encountered while learning online. The University of Windsor’s Office of Open Learning CO-OP students have researched, collected data, and reflected on their experience of their online schooling. This eBook presents a student perspective of online courses and can be representative of a larger student population. Our goal is to provide insight to faculty on the impact of online learning on students. We hope this can be used as a tool to improve the design of online classrooms and the students learning experience. Online classrooms should, at least in part, be designed in a way for students to learn and succeed. Through videos, interactive content, and text, we will discuss major concepts of the online learning experience such as grades, assessments, course delivery, and communication. We also include a student Q&A-style discussion about the myth and reality of online learning.
