Although online distance education provides adult learners with an opportunity for life-long learning, there are still factors challenging them to engage in educational processes. The purpose of this study is to explore the challenges faced by adult learners in online distance education through the analysis of the relevant literature. The findings reveal that adult learners have challenges related to internal, external, and program-related factors indicating the interrelated nature of these challenges. The findings also show that the challenges experienced by adult learners vary depending on their age, gender, knowledge and skills as well as the context in which they study.

Eight common problems with science literature reviews and how to fix them
Objective: The aim of this review was to explore the literature on the connection between teaching strategies and nursing students' learning to clarify which teaching strategies provide optimal learning experiences and outcomes. Methods: A systematic literature review was conducted that included quantitative and qualitative studies. Quality assessment was made in accordance with Malterud's guidelines on qualitative research and Polit and Beck's guidelines on quantitative research. The analysis was guided by Patricia Benner's organisation of teaching as teaching and learning in classroom and skills laboratory and teaching and learning in clinical practice. Result: In this review, titles and abstracts were screened resulting in 45 read and included studies. Conclusion: Teaching in skills lab and simulation laboratories provides a positive learning environment and motivates student nurses to learn.
