Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the instructor's and students' perceptions of interaction in the web-based environment. The participants were one instructor who taught an online course and 13 graduate students who took that course in summer 2004. The students were given a pre- and post-survey and the instructor was surveyed and interviewed at the end of the course. The study revealed that there were no significant differences among the students' perceptions on learner-content interaction, learner-instructor interaction, or learner-learner interaction between the beginning and the end of the online course, however their perceptions of interactions on the learner-instructor and learner-learner interactions are much higher than learner-content interaction. The results also indicated that receiving effective feedback from the instructor and peers as well as providing online collaborative opportunities are important attributes for successful online learning experiences.
