Recorded Virtual Schooling Sessions

Here are a couple of recorded sessions that are available for you to review that deal with virtual schooling.

From The Canadian Institute of Distance Education Research or CIDER...

Social Presence in a Web-Based Synchronous Secondary Classroom
Facilitator: Eric Nippard
Institution: Memorial University
Date and time: Jun 01, 2006 12:00 PM

The purpose of this study was to explore how social presence manifests itself in the web-based synchronous secondary classroom. Data were gathered using structured and semi-structured observation of classes and semi-structured interviews of teachers who work in the synchronous secondary classrooms of NL, Canada. Findings revealed that social presence was manifested through several categories of a revised instrument for identifying social presence. Social presence manifested itself for students through the use of text-based Direct Messaging and for teachers through use of two-way audio. Students relied on the conventions of communication of informal synchronous chat to manifest social presence. The archived recording of this session is available at: http://klaatu-dev.pc.athabascau.ca/elluminate/cidersession-060602.jnlp
