Chadha, Anita
Journal of Educators Online, v14 n2 Jul 2017
Fostering reflective deliberation in the online classroom ensures that students reach a high level of achievement in virtual courses. Student peer exchanges were evaluated on a collaborative web site structured around interactive weekly discussions offered across an online, face-to-face, and upper- and lower-division political science courses. Findings indicate that despite differences in mode and level of instruction, the 87 students were academically reflective in their peer discussions across geographic boundaries. This study concludes that a collaboration with a peer interactive design has an important place in online classes, which is a concern for educators and university administrators when developing and delivering pedagogical content.
