An Empirical Study on the Perceptions of Students enrolled in Business Programs toward Online Courses and Online Course Engagement Strategies during COVID-19
AbstractA rapid transition to online learning occurred in the United States in the Spring of 2020, triggered by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. An online survey questionnaire was administered in the Spring of 2021 to students enrolled in business programs in the United States at two universities to investigate the perceptions of students toward online business courses and the importance of engagement strategies within three types of interactions: learner-to-content, learner-to-teacher, learner-to-learner. Results indicated significant differences in perceptions among the groups (gender, online course experience, age) exist and provides guidance and practical suggestions to structure and design online business courses.
