In this presentation, Dr. Guadalupe Vadillo will describe a recent study looking into the characteristics of online learners at the secondary level. Students from three public online Mexican high schools were interviewed individually for the purpose of identifying differentiating characteristics among high, medium and low performing students. Analysis of the transcriptions was conducted. Twelve categories were found and differences in nine of these categories were identified. Details of this research study and the results will be discussed.
