The gradual uptake of online learning as a delivery medium for higher education necessitates a shift in the metrics used to determine quality and success. While the attributes that have typically been used as benchmarks for quality in learning remain the same, that factors that impact on these factors have changed and it is these factors that form the focus of this paper . The aim of this paper is to explore from both a conceptual and grounded perspective, the defining factors in the quality of students' learning experiences and to consider how can these be optimised in online learning settings.
