Interaction Strategies for Online Training Designs.
Wagner, Ellen D.
This paper discusses interactivity enabled by two-way technologies providing real-time exchanges of audio, video, text, and graphical information among distributed participants, as one of distance learning's primary identifying characteristics. Background is provided on interaction agents, including three types of instructional interactions--interactions between the learner and the instructor, interactions among learners, and interactions between learners and content. Interaction outcomes are summarized; the two purposes of interactions in this context are to change learners and to move learners toward an action state of goal attainment. The following types of categories that focus on what learners are to achieve as a result of an interaction are then described: participation; communication; feedback; elaboration; learner control/self-regulation; motivation; negotiation; team-building; discovery; exploration; clarification; and closure. The paper concludes with a discussion of applying interaction in practice. (DLS)
