Abstract

This study will investigate student perceptions of two different methods of online interaction in graduate educational technology coursework. All students will use an instant messenger (IM) program to facilitate online interaction between student/instructor and student/student. One group will be required to participate in IM topic-discussion-online in the conventional classroom. The other group will be required to participate in IM topic-discussion-online in the virtual classroom. Both groups will undergo a period of required access to office-hours-online, then be offered the option of continuing to use office-hours-online for the remainder of the semester. Student perceptions toward topic-discussion-online and instructor's office-hours-online between these two groups will be studied, along with their relative perceptions toward online interaction in general.
