Abstract

Online learning opens educational opportunities for working adults and this presentation aims to open a discussion for ways to improve curriculum and opportunities for students. Online library programs provide an alternative for adult learners when on-campus coursework is not a viable option. However, the digital nature of the degree has its drawbacks, especially for those students with little or no library work experience. This presentation discusses some of these challenges while comparing the online learning experience with a traditional face-to-face program. These difficulties include perceived job preparedness and connection with faculty, classmates, and the university.
