  2. 2. “the ability of participants in the community of inquiry to project their personal characteristics into the community, thereby presenting themselves to others as „real people‟”
  3. 3.  Anonymity can be easier to achieve in an online classroom – causing isolation.  Social interaction can enhance learning.
  4. 4.  Challenge: Getting students to feel comfortable engaging socially.  The online classroom needs to provide ways for students to identify with the class as a community, and to contribute to that community.
  5. 5. The online classroom must have a welcome space, where students can begin to interact and form a community.
  6. 6. Social presence can occur in learning activities normally thought of as individual in nature, such as responding to questions or prompts posed to the class. Creating a conversation outside of the “classroom” can help students create a stronger social presence.
  7. 7. Students engage with social media in their daily lives. Using social media to interact with students and to allow them to interact with each other will make it easier for students to create their own social presence within the course.
  8. 8. Get students talking in different platforms. Have students use Vine to pose questions to the class, or to submit responses, and create a Facebook group for the class.
  9. 9. Host real-time Twitter chats, and encourage the use of Google Hangouts for small group meetings or discussions.
