Community of Inquiry and Video in Higher Education Engaging Students Online
by Conrad, Oliver, M.S., California State University, Fullerton, 2015, 60; 1600912
Abstract (Summary)

This project involved creating a website about how to effectively use video in an online classroom setting. The website also contained strategies to implement video in online education. Online learning environments differ from face-to-face courses, as online education is sometimes perceived as less personal. There are several ways to incorporate video in online classrooms and therefore simulate a face-to-face interaction. By implementing video strategies in an online classroom, instructors and students develop a stronger social presence, which leads to a stronger learning community. For this thesis the author reviewed current literature about student engagement, feedback, and interactivity and studied the characteristics of faculty working in higher education as a target audience. After the website was developed it was tested and evaluated by subject matter experts, all of whom are anonymous.
