Abstract:
This in-progress study explores the effects on social presence and course satisfaction when students use video instead of text for a portion of their posts to an asynchronous discussion board. Preliminary quantitative data (N=20) shows no significant differences between the Video and Text groups, but qualitative data provides insight into students’ experiences with video posts. Findings from this study will help instructors and course designers select appropriate media for student-to-student interaction in online courses.
