Abstract

Online education can seem to be an impersonal exercise which leads students to feel "eSolated" from instructional staff and classmates. Simple strategies, however, can personalize the experience in ways which create opportunities both for learning and for social interactions, although participants are divided by space and time. Incorporating components of shared reflection, cooperative learning, positive peer review, and personalized feedback from faculty can overcome perceptions of eSolation which online students typically experience. Student feedback regarding these methods suggests that they promote learner satisfaction with the online course experience.
