dc.description.abstractThis study had the primary objective of identifying the advantages and disadvantages of online learning for a group of students studying in New Zealand. The study was conducted using a survey and interviews to delve into an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of online education from the student’s perspective. The intended audience for the research are academics, instructors, and the designers of online course modules, as well as those involved in the design of institutional educational learning systems. It was seen that although research on the definition and various facets of online learning is numerous, the literature regarding the advantages and the disadvantages of online learning was very limited. The study identified that the role of technical infrastructure and internet connectivity is paramount in ensuring the success of the online learning. Also, content and technology providers need to provide portable, high-quality, inter-operable solutions so that the same content can be delivered across the different institutions and different departments within the same institution. Further, the advantages can be leveraged to increase the popularisation of online education and inform best practice in using online learning platforms.en_NZ
