Hello. I'm Soda Parker and I'm very happy to have been invited to take part in your online course. The question I plan to explore with you is whether online instruction enhances learning. As educators, we are learning ourselves what makes online instruction most effective. Therefore, it is important to identify the particular characteristics of online instruction that result in increased learning.

The premise I will present is based on the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education described by Chickering and Gamson. I will describe several components of online instruction which promote these seven principles and thereby promote learning.

The presentation is delivered in PowerPoint. Further explanation of the points on each slide is included in the notes section. I invite your reaction to the premise and supporting examples. I look forward to engaging in a discussion with you.
