07 Aug Building Online Learning Communities featuring Rena Palloff
Research continues to show that the construction of a learning community, with the instructor participating as an equal member, is the key to successful online course outcomes and is the vehicle through which online education is best delivered. How to develop effective learning communities, however, remains a mystery to some.
