The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways in which the degree of computer skills, preferred learning styles, and prior experience with online courses influenced the acquisition of knowledge among adult learners who were participating in an online special education course. There were a total of forty-six adult students that participated in the research project and registered for a special education course that was offered online. Based on the findings of the study, it was discovered that the learning styles and preferences of adult students have a substantial impact on their knowledge acquisition. Additionally, the study discovered that computer proficiency has a moderately positive link with academic achievement. During the course of the research, it was discovered that there was no substantial connection between previous involvement in online courses and achievement in web-based courses.
