On line Chatting Encourages Social Interaction!

Let's get personal: Tips to humanize online learning
In their session "Let's Get Virtual: Tips to Humanize Online Learning," University of South Dakota professors Doreen Gosmire, Marcia Morrison and Joanne Van Osdel presented one of the upsides to online learning -- online discussion ensures that all students contribute in class discussions. Introverted students are more likely to come forth in online discussions to express their understanding of, and interest in, the subject. An ASCD blog post highlights benefits of online group discussions. The post also asks readers whether they have taught online, and, if so, how they humanized the learning exchange.

Join this blog and share your thoughts on increasing student interactions - pros and cons - by using online chatting - through blogs, etc.
