In distance education, interactivity refers to mutual influence of objects and actions, particularly with reference to the relationship of learner, instructor, content, and technology. Instructors should build interactivity into distance learning to increase participation, develop communication, receive feedback, enhance elaboration and retention, support learner self-regulation, increase motivation, negotiate understanding, build teams, discover, explore, clarify, and create closure.
