Abstract

As online courses become more popular with college students, it is important for student affairs professionals to understand how this unique environment influences student learning and growth. This paper examines the impact of the asynchronous online learning environment on student cognitive development. Kolb's (1984) Experiential Learning Theory of Development is used to explain this influence and further inform student affairs practice in a previously unexplored realm.
