No cost/no risk doesn’t = traditional support
No cost/no risk doesn’t = any less time

No cost/ no risk can = fun
No cost/ no risk can = empowerment Expectations Auditing - learners watch lectures throughout course, but attempt very few assessments
Completing - learners attempt majority of assessments offered in course
Disengaging - learners attempt assessments at beginning of the course, but then sparsely watch lectures or disappear entirely
