E-Personality: The Fusion of IT and Pedagogical Technique
Chepya, Peter
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v28 n3 p9-10 2005
When university course delivery first went online in the late 1990s, there was little guidance on how to do it, almost no thought given to teaching, and no consideration of the aesthetics of online pedagogy. One advance in online pedagogical technique is an online teaching technique called "e-Personality," which the author developed to support his own courses. The theory behind e-Personality, since proven in practice, was that whatever made a professor successful in the classroom could be "migrated" to Internet teaching. The success of the fusion of e-Personality and IT expertise has come from the belief that what makes for physical classroom success makes for Internet classroom success. With vital IT input, each and every trick of the trade used in front of a physically present class can be used "in front of" an online asynchronous class. (Contains 1 endnote.)
