Recent academic research shows a relationship between the perceived quality of distance learning programs and certain types of on-line activity. These include "verbal immediacy behavior" on the part of online faculty, aggressive moderation of online discussions, the mix and scheduling of synchronous and asynchronous sessions, and so on. During this session, a panel of active practitioners will discuss these reports and reflect on their own experience in higher education distance learning programs. Some panel members will be joining the session via Adobe Connect.
