Podcasting has become increasingly popular and easy-to-use tools integrated in course management systems make it easy for faculty to incorporate audio-delivered content in their courses. Earlier studies showed that instructor immediacy is associated with learning outcomes, satisfaction, and motivation. Students participating in this experiment (n=601) were assigned to listen to two versions of a recorded session (high vs. low immediacy) and reported on their perceptions of the instructor immediacy and social presence. Results demonstrated that students assigned to the high-immediacy session indicated significantly higher perception of instructor immediacy and social presence than students assigned to the low-immediacy session. Findings suggest that using established immediacy behaviors will impact student perceptions of the instructor and the learning experience projected through audio recordings.
