Abstract

In this paper we share our experiences with using asynchronous video communications to increase teacher immediacy and social presence during a technology integration course for pre-service teachers. We describe three cases where asynchronous video was used to facilitate instructor-student and peer-to-peer communications. The online tools used were Facebook, VoiceThread, and video blogs created by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Brigham Young University (BYU). Our initial findings indicate that the use of regular video instructor-student and peer-to-peer communication can be an effective way to improve instructor immediacy and social presence in an online environment while maintaining the flexibility that draws students to online learning.
