Advice for the Online Instructor: Keep It Interpersonal

Advice for the Online Instructor: Keep It Interpersonal

An interview with Ken W. White, a co-author of The Online Teaching Guide, a new guidebook intended to help professors run effective online courses. White makes the case that the online environment can and should be an interpersonal environment. Instead of a correspondence-course model -- where students send in assignments to an instructor who sends back feedback to those assignments -- he argues for one in which there is a dialogue and interaction taking place in the online medium that really transform people and allow their personalities to come across the medium.
