Building Sense of Community at a Distance.
Rovai, Alfred P.
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, v3 n1 Apr 2002
A learning community can be defined in terms of four dimensions: spirit, trust, interaction, and common expectations and goals. The virtual classroom can develop a sense of community through attention to transactional distance, social presence, social equality, small group activities, group facilitation, teaching style and learning stage, and community size.
