The purpose of this survey research is to identify students’ perceived barriers to online learning in various environments: higher education, community colleges, and the workplace. Furthermore, the study is meant to identify the relative weight of the barriers depending upon selected demographic characteristics. The significance of this research, from a practical standpoint, is that these efforts will help in guiding educators as they develop online courses and facilitate student learning. Additionally, since this is a first attempt to statistically verify a framework of students’ perceived barriers, an emphasis is placed on identifying potential areas of future research.
