Creating successful online learning environments--Interactions Creating successful online learning environments--Interactions Presentation Transcript

  • Creating Successful Online Learning Environments Interactions VCC workshop March 2009 Tannis Morgan
  • Course interactions are…
    • Formal (assessed)
    • Semi-formal (formative)
    • informal
    • Brainstorm all the types of student-student and student-instructor interactions that might take place in a course
  • Interaction Spaces
    • In online you create spaces for the interactions related to activities (formal), the semi-formal, and to some extent the informal
    • The spaces can be asynchronous (discussion forums, voice boards) or synchronous (live classrooms, text chat).
  • Creating interaction spaces
    • Interaction spaces are important for:
        • Setting the stage—making the instructor seem ‘real’
        • Creating community—making students feel less isolated
        • Providing feedback
        • Just-in-time communication
        • Other thoughts?
  • Interaction spaces
    • discussion forums
    • email
    • “ live” classrooms
    • telephone
    • Chat
    • Announcements tool
    • Weblog
    • Skype
  • Instructor presence
    • Expectations--once a week is probably not enough
    • More instructor presence = higher student satisfaction and evaluation of the course
    • More instructor presence = increased tolerance of ‘gaps’ or less-than-ideal design
    • Presence goes beyond content
  • Thanks!
