When we look at what type of student that will be successful in an online environment, the first attribute would be self-motivation. Students must be self-motivated and able to manage their time to meet the requirements and time constraints of the course. Students must feel engaged and part of the course. This alone can pull students in and create motivation. Through good organization and communication often times students will perform who may not necessarily be a self motivators. Often times at-risk students perform well in online classes due to the ability to work at their own pace. A student’s successfulness in an online class has a lot to do with how the class is organized and structured for the individual student.
