Abstract: Underrepresented (UR) students face barriers to help-seeking in traditional classrooms. We predicted these barriers would be ameliorated online. We analyzed online course discussion boards and found UR students asked for help more often than non-UR students and women were more likely than men to ask for help explicitly at least once. Furthermore, not help-seeking was related to worse course grades. These results suggest the online setting may decrease barriers to help-seeking for underrepresented students.
