    • Moore stated three forms of interaction in distance learning:

  • Internet tools Mastering internet tools will help the instructor to increase the level of interactions.
  • In conclusion We cannot use the traditional theories in online learning without using internet tools and technologies. On the other hand, we cannot use internet tools and technologies in online learning without educational theories. But we have to integrate between the educational theories and the internet tools and technologies to achieve high level of interaction.
