ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Computer-mediated communication (CMC) technologies have been an integral part of distance education for many years. They are found in both synchronous and asynchronous platforms and are intended to enhance the learning experience for students. CMC technologies add an interactive element to the online learning environment.

However, the combination of age and gender was not found to be a predictor of BI. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
