Applying a social view of learning as participation in discourse, this paper explores what is known about teaching and learning mediated through technology in distance education settings. Using the literature, we develop and describe a model for instruction (STTAR) that can be used to guide online instruction with the goal of maximizing student learning in these settings. We contextualize the model based on the real-world experiences of two online instructors.
