Abstract

Distance and online learning (DOL) is becoming a must for university education in times of pandemic. In this context, it is important to take into account the factors that can influence students’ perseverance in, or dropout from, university studies. Not all of these factors are unanimously accepted in DOL research. This study, of 791 undergraduate students in 2018-19 enrolled in a francophone DOL institution, concludes that the factors influencing dropout from DOL are as much related to the personal characteristics of the students and to their learning strategies as to the pedagogical design of the course.
