—Countries across the world have witnessed
tremendous expansion of adult education and dramatic growth
of adult learners. Moreover, with the growing importance of
life-long learning, online learning has become a popular tool
which is well received by adult learners. In order to enhance
adult learners’ learning experience, we have conducted an
exploratory research on online learning for adult learners to
understand the challenges faced by them in their pursuit of
higher education. The results suggest that technical trainings or
preparations are needed prior to e-learning and infrastructure
needs to be improved. The findings also emphasize on the
importance of using localized examples and cases for class
—Adult learning, e-learning, higher education.
