Abstract

This study presents an empirical examination of the factors influencing undergraduate students to choose enrollment in an economics course via a distance education delivery format - specifically, a telecourse. The results indicate that age, work status, living distance to campus, and previous telecourse enrollment significantly influence a student's decision.
