Online learning is an increasingly utilized format of education in K-12 environments, yet research has not historically focused on this age group when examining best practices. Learning styles, self-regulation, and self-efficacy are considered to impact the success of students in online learning environments. This literature review examines the impact on and strategies for engaging learning styles, self-regulation, and self-efficacy to provide student success in K-12 online learning environments. Though research varies on the impact of learning styles, self-regulation, and self-efficacy in online learning environments, intentional incorporation of strategies to engage students does seem to improve learning and student success.
