To understand whether student satisfaction in online courses at Regis University (a Jesuit university located in Denver, Colorado) included the values priority of the university, a study examined student evaluation forms. Based on analysis of more than 1,200 student evaluations drawn from 118 online and 73 classroom-based courses, five of six university values achieved near equal, equal or greater levels of satisfactions in the online environment when compared to the classroom-based courses. Additionally, 28 online instructors provide insights about how to incorporate values such as leadership, problem solving, critical thinking, communication, social and ethical responsibility, and respect for diversity in online learning. Instructors identified several factors, which they believe contribute to the delivery of high-quality online courses, including strong communication skills, commitment to value learning, and strategic design of courses to include activities that promote discussion of values. Contains 16 references and 3 tables of data. (Author/RS)
