Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
The Hellenic Open University is the first Greek university that is designed to give the opportunity to adults, who have work and family obligations, to study at a distance. The main purpose of the paper is to describe the findings of a survey that was administered to the students of the Hellenic Open University, focusing on the main factors that contribute to the satisfaction of their studies. The first part contains a brief introduction and a literature review of distance learners' satisfaction and then the summary of adult learning theories, based on the fact that distance learners are normally adults. The second part describes the methodology of the survey and the results. A brief discussion and the limitations of the study are presented with recommendations for further research.
