  4. 4. Instructor Presence “Instructor visibility is of key importance for establishing instructor presence.” Although our work underscores the importance of the factors noted in our presentation goals, we chose to narrow our focus to the use of personal videos as a way of enhancing instructor presence in online learning. -Mandernack, Gonzales, & Garrell (2006)
  5. 5. Anytime. Anywhere. One of the main reasons students choose to take online classes is that they can access the course at anytime, anywhere. -Ferre, 2012 “I like that everything is planned out in advance. I am able to get things done on my own time. “ -anonymous GVSU graduate student
  6. 6. Brainstorming exercise How do you establish your presence on the first day of an “in-seat” class? How do you do these same things when your class is completely online?

  10. 10. Student Response Data “Continue to make videos! I learn best by listening, so I appreciate having heard requirements and expectations rather than reading them!” “They help to put a personal feel to the course, and again, it shows the organization and thoroughness of the course setup.”
  11. 11. Student Response Data “My instructor made a great video at the beginning of the course explaining everything with great detail about the course. Right away I felt very connected to her. She's offered to meet us face to face when we have an issue and I love that she's willing to help us in every way.”
  12. 12. Student Response Data “I said no because even though it is nice to have that connection, the bulk of the work is still done independently and in the same structure as other online course I've had that haven't posted the videos.”
