Community of Inquiry and Video in Higher Education: Engaging Students Online
Conrad, Oliver
Online Submission
The purpose of this literature review was to explore how video technology can be effectively used in an online classroom setting. The author found and cited online journals with information about the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework. He further explored specific sources that could give readers an idea how online video technology can affect each of the three elements of the CoI framework. These three elements are cognitive presence, teaching presence, and social presence. This literature review also contains information about the overall impact of online video technology on higher education as well as strategies to implement video in online classrooms. Results indicate that due to the sheer masses of educational online videos, sifting through them to find relevant and accurate content will remain a challenging task for instructors. The literature further indicates that it is highly advisable to build a course design around the use of video instead simply of exposing students to videos without an accompanying strategy in mind. One fact though does become clear: Online video technology helps with establishing a social presence for both the instructor and the student. Educators could potentially further investigate the impact of online video technology in relation to the community of inquiry. There is already enough literature in existence that would allow another researcher to explore these issues in more depth.
