E-learning has become a key factor in higher education around the globe, yet institutions still struggle with the social dynamic relationships between the online instructor and learner. The purpose of this presentation is to examine the effective practices of e-learning from an online instructor and learner perspective. The context of this presentation will focus on a traditional university campus that provides both face-to-face and open learning (online, print design, and blended formats) in western Canada. Specifically, it will provide a literature review, personal observations, and shared examples from online and face-to-face instructors and learners. The findings of this presentation will enable practitioners to increase, strengthen, and enhance social relationships between the learner and the online instructor. Finally, continuing challenges and guidelines for online instructors will be presented and discussed.
