Self-regulated learning is associated with high student achievement, intrinsic motivation, and self-satisfaction. Successful learners use a wide variety of self-regulatory techniques including goal setting, self-monitoring and evaluation, task strategies, help-seeking, time management, and social interaction. These techniques are vitally important in the online environment, where learners have more responsibility for their learning than in most traditional courses. Through explicit instruction, practice opportunities, time for student reflection, and external feedback, instructors can teach these skills to their students. Online strategies in each technique are discussed.
