Abstract

This study explored the perceptions and experiences of a group of students enrolled in an online course in Economic Evaluation. A mixed methods approach was adopted for the data collection, and thematic analysis was used to synthesize the data collected and highlight key findings. The participants identified several positive and negative perceived attributes of online learning, many of which are well documented in the literature. In addition, after exposure to the course, participants reported several factors that affected their learning experience on this course, some of which have not yet been reported in the wider literature. The five main factors affecting learning on this course include; 1) Pace of learning in an online environment, 2) Learning style, 3) Immediacy of feedback, 4) Method of content delivery, and 5) Issues around navigating content. These findings could help improve online teaching practice and learning quality in future courses.
