Students drop classes for many reasons. Some are personal such as medical conditions, family issues, or financial difficulties. Others are course specific such as course contents, instructor, or classmates. In either way, class drop is a serious problem to institutions because without students there will be no students learning. As a first step to understand students drops, this study will address the issue of students' behaviors in online classrooms.
