The authors analyzed online interactions in hybrid and blended courses to: (a) investigate if constructs from micro-sociology, such as self-talk, norms, and front-back-stage performance, provide a theoretical context for online interaction, and (b) compare courses with more versus fewer online components in terms of online interaction patterns. Online interaction in courses with more online components (70% online) conformed to social patterns, such as self-talk, internalization of norms and front-back-stage performance. Courses with fewer online components (30%) did not conform to social patterns, suggesting a threshold for amount of online components for students to habituate to online portions of hybrid/blended courses. Results also suggest a possible sequence of immediacy behaviors: (a) affective, (b) cohesive, and (c) interactive.
