Interacting at a Distance: Creating Engagement in Online Learning Environments
Robert L. Moore (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-9582-5.ch016
Abstract
Effective online instruction requires understanding not only interaction but also how to facilitate interaction through technology (Moore & Kearsley, 2012). Specifically, Moore and Kearsley (2012) categorize these types of interactions as “learner with content, interaction with instruction [or] interaction with other learners” (p. 132). This chapter examines each of these interaction types and suggests ways to incorporate them into online learning environments (OLEs). The chapter provides techniques and approaches that will be beneficial to both instructional design practitioners and online instructors. It seeks to assuage some of the concerns that faculty have about OLEs and provides ideas and activities that can be implemented by course designers or instructors in OLE projects.
