Learner Services for Web Delivered Courses

The perspective of the learner - especially the working adult learner often typical within distance education programs - are often different from institutional or faculty perspectives. Very often, services within the institution available for on-campus students are not available for off-campus students or not available with the same quality of service. Very likely, institutions are blind to these problems since off-campus students don't storm over to administrators offices to protest; they likely either endure begrudgingly or just don't enroll in the future and drop off the institution's radar.  Faculty may feed this student frustration by erroneously assuming that student services such as library reserves, quality academic advising, access to licensed on-line commercial databases, and digital reprint services are readily available to distance students.
