Guerrero, Laura K.; Miller, Tammy A.
Communication Education, v47 n1 p30-42 Jan 1998
Finds that instructors who are viewed as expressive, warm, and involved are most likely to be judged (by students viewing instructional videotapes used in distance education courses) as highly competent and that, when instructors are expressive, warm, involved, and articulate, their course content is likely to be judged favorably, especially if they are not overly composed and fluent.
