Description

An examination of online distance learner (ODL) students at the University of Edinburgh, in relation to the academic support needs during different transitional stages of their academic journey.

We are defining academic support as support designed to help students reach their academic potential. This includes resources, information, or individuals which will enable a student to engage with their programme of study and feel confident and equipped academically. This may include University expectations, time management, essay writing, statistics, presentation skills, and other such resources.
