Online learning has made higher education accessible for more students, yet there are ongoing concerns about low student engagement, retention and progression rates in this sector. Online students often experience a sense of isolation and disconnection with their studies and institution, with instructor presence identified as an influential factor in terms of student motivation to engage. This presentation will share the results of a study that investigated the factors which impacted upon students’ engagement with a fully online course. Findings indicated that the presence of the instructor was particularly influential in motivating students to engage with the course.
