My colleague Federico Borges, has publised an online article entitled The frustrations of online students. Causes and preventative actions.
It deals with the reasons why online feel discontent with their online education and, thus, end dropping out. Most of the reasons Borges gives are especially aplicable to the community that follows cooperation for development online courses or, indeed, e-learning for development courses.
