Abstract: An increasing number of students are choosing online education programs to complete their higher education. Research has concluded that physical distance alone does not influence student satisfaction and retention despite the fact that student satisfaction and retention are related to program completion. In this study, we examined those factors associated with student perceptions of online course communications and collaboration at a large, public university located in the Southwestern United States. Results indicate program characteristics and whether or not a student would recommend their program as being associated with differences in perception of online course communications and collaboration.
