In my Capstone course of the MDE program, I learned to recognize an area of Distance Education and E-learning that needed research and that I found interesting, identify my research questions, prepare a research proposal and outline, perform an extensive review of the literature, and write thoughtfully to answer the questions I had posed. I gained new research skills as well as knowledge that I did not have prior to this class, and that come as a result of successfully completing a Master’s research project in the humanities in general and DE and E-learning in particular. The experience was tough and exciting. I am thankful to my teacher for her exceptional guidance, and to my writing coach for her help.
I trust you will enjoy reading my thesis entitled Reducing Online Course Dropout in Community College. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further.
