This reference book provides building blocks to help improve the outcome of online coursework and discusses social presence to help improve performance, interaction, and a sense of community for all participants in an online arena. This book is of essential use to online educators, administrators, researchers, and students.

Reviews and Testimonials

Scholars mostly of education technology, but also related fields such as education and communication, present instructional models, learning theories, best practices, and emerging strategies that support student-teacher interaction in online learning environments. Their topics include examining design pattern strategies as a means to achieve social presence in the online classroom, the value of social presence in developing student satisfaction and learning outcomes in online environments, bridging the social and teaching presence, pre-service teachers engaging with Twitter as a professional online learning environment, and using a distributed learning environment model to foster learner-educator interaction.
