Literature suggests that elements of culture, motivation, learning management systems and online pedagogy play a major role in attrition rates in the higher education sector. Using an interpretivist paradigm with qualitative case studies from six countries, the researcher explores online lecturers' successful engagement strategies on these four main thematic areas. Results provide a range of strategies that can be applied by lecturers to increase engagement and minimize online attrition.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Educators Online, 12(1), p. 62-90||Publisher:||Journal of Educators Online||Place of Publication:||Dothan, United States of America||ISSN:||1547-500X||Field of Research (FOR):||130212 Science, Technology and Engineering Curriculum and Pedagogy
