Learners taking an online course often develop implicit expectations as to what they can expect from traditional classrooms. The purpose of this study was to determine student expectations of an online collaborative learning environment, as well as to examine how students adjust their expectations when the course ends. The results from an online survey indicated that student expectations before taking the course and after the course are different. Overall, the students raised their expectations at the end of the course, except for their expectations of the instructor and the level of effort and convenience. In addition, students significantly gained more understanding of an online learning environment after the course was completed.
