Abstract – The members of a virtual learning community, including both personal-based and school-based, are often critical to students’ overall academic success. However, the extent of these relationships differs quite widely in a virtual learning environment as compared to a traditional, face-to-face environment. While there is evidence of the importance of these relationships on academic achievement, less synthesized are how these members act together to impact student engagement, a critical function of online learning success. In this chapter, the authors describe a comprehensive framework, guided by prior research, and how students’ support system, both in school and at home, help impact four primary dimensions of student engagement, including behavioral, cognitive, social, and affective. Finally, the chapter provides some recommendations for educator preparation programs.
