Toward a Web-Enhanced Model of Interaction in Freshman General Education History Courses
Olt, Phillip
Journal of Classroom Interaction, v53 n1 p37-51 2018
While American students increasingly choose to study online, most professors remain skeptical of its quality. This paper explores the perspectives of history professors at a liberal arts institution regarding their general education classes taught face-to-face (F2F) and online, focusing on interactive communication with students between the two delivery methods. While faculty expectations varied between the methods, social interaction was a greater factor in F2F classes, and content interaction occurred more consistently and in more depth online. The study indicates that a web-enhanced approach to instruction may provide the strengths of both methods for large lecture classes taught F2F.
