The findings are a result of a project carried out last year by Dr Cathy Stone under an Equity Fellowship supported by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE). 

Qualitative interviews with 151 higher education practitioners from Australia and the United Kingdom consistently illustrated the need for a strategic, tailored approach to online programs, with an emphasis on student engagement and an individualised approach to monitoring, support and outreach.
