From Pixel on a Screen to Real Person in Your Students' Lives: Establishing Social Presence Using Digital Storytelling
Lowenthal, Patrick R.; Dunlap, Joanna C.
Internet and Higher Education, v13 n1-2 p70-72 Jan 2010
The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework is a comprehensive guide to the research "and" practice of online learning. One of the most challenging aspects of establishing a CoI in online courses is finding the best way to attend to each element of the CoI framework in a primarily text-based environment. In our online courses, we have examined the use of digital storytelling as a way to break down the barriers that can get in the way of achieving a healthy and productive CoI. In this paper, we describe how we use digital storytelling to establish our social presence as instructors. (Contains 2 figures.)
