Abstract

Many online instructors seek to develop community or “social presence” in their courses and programs to improve student collaboration, engagement and learning. While much of the research on online learning has focused on the cognitive domain, little attention has been paid to the affective aspects. Web-based learning environments provide synchronous and asynchronous CmC tools that the literature suggests can support intellectual and social/psychological development. This work explores the use of synchronous chat in online graduate courses and evidence of the affordances provided in support of personal/social development towards a more robust social presence.
