Three Community Building Strategies and Their Impacts in an On-Line Course.
Egbert, Joy; Chao, Chin-Chi; Ngeow, Karen
This paper describes three instructional strategies designed to support community building in an online graduate teacher education course: (1) MOO (Multi-User Dimensions Object Oriented) field trips, in which participants are introduced to text-based virtual environments on the Internet through metaphoric online "field trips"; (2) integrating experts into the final project; and (3) small group case studies, allowing participants to work closely with two or three of their classmates on problem scenarios that are aligned to their teaching contexts. The impacts of these strategies are also discussed briefly. (MES)
