Students’ active regulation of learning, through a variety of cognitive and metacognitive strategies, is crucial to their online learning success. Despite the large numbers enrolled in online language courses, very little is known about students’ strategy use in these learning environments, or how such strategies may affect their online learning outcomes. This study aims to fill this gap by examining students’ learning-strategy use across a number of online language courses, and investigating the role of learning strategies within the framework of self-regulated learning.This study collected data on the online language-learning strategies used by 466 high-school students who were taking various online language courses in a Midwestern virtual school. Our findings indicated that students in the sample used online learning strategies at a moderate level in their language learning process.

Note that I am in a different session right now (as SITE has a habit this week of double booking several items).  So if there is anyone in the room that would like to share their notes, please post them in the comments below.
