dc.description.abstract Absenteeism is an issue plaguing schools across the nation. A disruption in learning occurs when students miss valuable instruction due to illness or extended vacations. Many schools are looking at the use of online learning modules as a possible solution. Used in the post-secondary environment, online learning modules have the potential to deliver engaging and collaborative lessons on a 24-hour basis. This action research project examined whether middle school students were comfortable with receiving instructional materials from a learning module in an online format. Through the use of Web 2.0 tools, students provided evidence of understanding Hawaii Standard CTE.7-8.2.4 which deals with analyzing how skills and interests affect career choices. Data collection was in the form of pre and post online surveys and student reflections in an online blog. The research focused on the ease with which students were able to navigate an online module, comfort level using Web 2.0 tools to collaborate and motivational level while carrying out tasks. As a result of this study in a regular classroom, the researcher and others interested in the topic will now have a better understanding of the requirements in designing online learning to help absentee middle school students. en_US
