K - 12 online learning at the K - 12 level has been around for approximately two decades and is continuing to grow. While researchers have researched a variety of issues related to K - 12 online learning, there has been little published on the student experience in web - based learning environments. In this article, two doctoral students were tasked with analyzing existing data, then representing and situating their findings in a format other than the traditional “results” and “discussion” sections found in a typical six - section journal manuscript. One student created an image that focused upon the tools used by the K - 12 student in her online learning. The other student created a slideshow to illustrate the challenges faced by a second K - 12 student in her online learning. While more research into the K - 12 student experience in online learning is required, this article represents one creative attempt to address this need.
