Abstract

Student interaction is understood as an essential aspect of online instruction. This study examines the effect of using VoiceThread, a web 2.0 tool, as the primary medium for content delivery and student interaction for two online courses: one graduate, one undergraduate. Results suggest students find VoiceThread beneficial for learning course content and connecting to peers and instructor. Graduate students report greater benefits. Online students using VoiceThread had classroom community scores higher than students in sections not using the tool and comparable to students in face-to-face settings.
