Community College English Composition Online Students: Keeping Them Plugged In
In this book, Dr. Hayes-Scott addresses a major crisis in online education, especially college
English composition courses—attrition. Students who determine that this is not the best
way to learn, probably take an on-campus course. This book, however, focuses on
retaining students who take online courses.
This book suggests testing instruments that may help in advising students to or not to take
an online English course. Furthermore, Dr. Hayes-Scott shares what is in the research
regarding techniques that can be implemented in online courses that may be successful in
keeping the attrition rate low. Dr. Hayes-Scott implemented some of these techniques
and reports her experiences. So, this work is not just a theoretical discourse; it is an
empirical response to the theory.
