Abstract

This paper explores connections between students’ communication preferences and instructors’ formative assessment practices in online learning. The purpose is to understand the use of VoiceThread, a web 2.0 application, to promote student interaction and formative assessment in an online environment. Results suggest VoiceThread facilitates student connections to instructor and peers. A disconnect is discussed between students’ desire for peer interaction and their hesitancy to make audio and video comments more likely to promote social presence. Recommendations are made for using VoiceThread for formative assessment and to promote student interaction.
