Abstract

In this research teacher behaviour in online asynchronous discussions is studied. To this end teachers’ online messages were analyzed and correlated to measures of student satisfaction. Findings show a positive relation between student satisfaction and the presence of content knowledge, multiple acknowledgement, online personality and summary of (parts of) the discussion in teacher messages. The research resulted in a scoring guideline for online teacher messages that can be used to enhance the quality of online teaching.
