    1. 1. The Effectiveness of Audio Feedback in Online Environments <br />Larisa Olesova,Purdue University<br />Christine MeloniNorthern Virginia Community College<br />Donald Weasenforth Collin College TESOL 2011, New Orleans, LA<br />This study is supported by The International Research Foundation for<br />English Language Education (TIRF) <br />
    2. 2. Introduction<br />Audio feedback in online environments<br />Definition:<br />technique by which instructors record their comments in digital audible form and attach them to students’ assignment<br />
    3. 3. Introduction<br />Community of Inquiry Framework<br />Social presence<br />Cognitive presence<br />Teaching presence<br />
    4. 4. Social Presence<br />Definition:<br />The ability of participants in a community of inquiry to project themselves socially and emotionally as “real” people through the medium of communication being used<br />
    5. 5. Cognitive Presence<br />Definition:<br />The extent to which learners are able to construct and confirm meaning through sustained reflection and discourse<br />
    6. 6. Teaching Presence<br />Definition:<br />The design, facilitation, and direction of cognitive social processes for the purpose of realizing personally meaningful and educationally worthwhile learning outcomes <br />

    29. 29. Results: RQ1<br />
    30. 30. Results: RQ1<br />
    31. 31. Results: RQ1<br />An EFL student responded:<br />“I think written comments are very clear, but audio is better, because you can hear intonations.” <br />versus<br />An ESL student:<br />“The fact that is the instructor voice does not make any different.”<br />
    32. 32. Results: RQ1<br />“It feel me more involved because it seems like I have real conversation with my instructor,” and “I think it is because you are listening to the teacher, so in a way you feel as if you were in a classroom.”<br />
    33. 33. Results: RQ1<br />From an EFL student,:<br />“Audio comments made me feel more involved into the process,<br />so on receiving such an audio feedback you start to think that your<br />work is needful and your opinion is valuable.” <br />From an ESL student:<br /> “It is true that we listen to someone who talks to us more than a<br />silent paper, so we get more from audio.”<br />
    34. 34. Results: RQ1<br />From an EFL student:<br />“I think that both types are very important, but audio comments<br />influenced my motivation more.” <br />An ESL student said:<br /> “I think both are effective. For me the difference is the kind of<br />student that we are.”<br />
