This study, by employing quasi-experimentation, empirically examines three different interactive strategies in the virtual classroom. The interactive strategies of control, feedback, and guidance are manipulated upon subjects in the experiment group and in the control group, and afterwards, subjects' online learning behaviors are then measured. Results indicate that the control strategy can effectively increase students' class attendance and length of time spent in class behaviors in the virtual classroom, while the feedback and guidance strategies does not significantly increase such effects.
