The rate of success of a student in Internet-based distance education courses is usually attributed to several factors. One must examine all of these elements in order to assess how each facilitates or impedes the knowledge to be gained. In the new millennium, adult learners will become the fastest growing segment of higher education (Ben-Jacob, Levin, & Ben-Jacob, 2000; Galusha, 1997); this will call for a greater need to offer quality off-campus, Internet-based courses. With the rise of technological advances in delivery systems (Bonk & Dennen, 1999), we will see a unique meshing between student and telecommunications. The following observations involve adult distance learners.
