Just as students in traditional physical learning environments need connections, students in online learning environments also need the same type of connections. Building collaboration among participants in online course environments has been shown to positively affect students’ success in courses and extend to programs. Many tools are available to support three areas of interaction: learner-instructor interaction, learner-learner interaction, and learner-content interaction. Some of the tools available to facilitate communication related to the three areas of interaction will be discussed in regard to how they can be used to encourage collaboration among class members.
