Social presence is one of the most critical factors in technology-based learning. To increase the level of interaction, the degree of social presence must be increased. Social presence was defined as the degree of person-to-person awareness in previous studies. This does not provide a clear definition of social presence. This study was designed to redefine the social learning theory for the online learning environment. Three dimensions of social presence and the privacy factor were examined in this study to redefine the social presence theory. It was concluded that three dimensions of social presence, social context, online communication and interactivity, emerged and the privacy factor correlated to the social presence theory.
