Fatimah Hishamuddin, Nurbiha Shukor

Abstract

Fostering students' leadership skills is a challenge and a commitment, both personally and professionally. People often overlook leadership skills in education because people perceived that leadership skills should be acquired by someone who has a specific role as a leader. Other than nurturing leadership traditionally or face to face, it can be nurtured online. In online learning, leadership can emerge among members without appointed as official leaders. This study aims to explore the role of leadership in an online learning environment. The literature searched was carried out using online databases such as Science Direct, Scopus, Emerald, IEEE Xplore, Taylor and Francis and Wiley Online Library. Findings from the literature review show leadership plays a role in the online learning environment by improving behavioural engagement between members, enhancing knowledge sharing, improving the individual learning experience and enhancing positive emotions and motivations. Future research should focus on identifying the effect of leadership on multi-dimensional aspects of online learning such as learning engagement (behavioural, cognitive and emotions) as well as students’ learning performance.
