As early as 1989, Michael G. Moore proposed that effective instruction in online courses was characterized by three types of interaction: student-to-student, student-to-instructor, and student-to-content. In a meta-analysis of research on distance education, Robert M. Bernard et al. (2009) demonstrated the validity of Moore’s framework and showed that a blend of the three types of interaction increased student motivation, persistence, and satisfaction as well as learning.
Thus, Moore’s three-part framework serves as a useful, evidence-based guide to online course design and problem-solving, whether the instructor is creating a new course or redesigning a single lesson.
Join Melissa Wong to explore strategies for designing effective, engaging interactions of all three types, focusing on simple activities and free tools that can be used in a variety of settings, from one-shots and workshops to semester-long courses in both synchronous and asynchronous settings.
