AbstractAusburn, L.J. (2004). Course design elements most valued by adult learners in blended online education environments: An American perspective. Educational Media International, 41(4), 327-337. The objective of this study was to identify course design elements most valued by adult learners in blended learning environments. These rankings were then compared to other sub-groups based on gender, pre-course technology, selfdirection skills and experiences and preferred learning strategies. Findings indicate that adults value course designs containing options, personalization, selfdirection, variety, and a learning community. Results also identify differences in learning emphasis by gender, preferred learning strategies, and previous experience with technology and self-directed learning.
