Motivating and Retaining Learners Online

Perhaps the number one problem in online learning after technology is keeping students going.  Motivating and retaining students is the difference between successful completions and a dissatisfied turned off learner.

While I don’t personally subscribe to the theory that we can motivate others (motivation in my mind is an intrinsic state), I do believe we can do things which break down barriers to motivation.  To that end I happened across this ebook which speaks to the topic of what we can do for our online students. Its an interesting take on applying good teaching methods to our digital learners.  Recommended summer read.
