Research in both traditional and online education has shown that students with specific personality types may be more likely to excel within the classroom. Therefore, this study explored students? personality types in relation to online course success in order to isolate personality types that may be more likely to succeed in an online learning environment. Results suggest that student characteristic behaviors, rather than simply personality type, although likely related, may be more relevant to community-college student success in an online learning environment. In addition, findings from the study reveal the potential benefits that student technology can provide, including support for students new to online learning and increased levels of collaborative learning and communication.
