Abstract

A common "mistake" made by lecturers teaching online is to do little more than put their notes online, and to support it with some sort of electronic mailing list. Many online learning environments such as WebCT and Blacboard are also designed to support this instructional model. This paper discusses alternative activities that have been used to put the ACTION into INTERACTION in an online teaching and learning environment. Activities discussed include virtual discussions, building virtual desks, and even a virtual student rag procession. The paper also shows which message acts are most likely to be engaged in by instructors, and what message acts are carried out by learners.
