1. Weissman, Nancy. Evaluating the Effectiveness of a Synchronous Online Environment in Establishing Social, Cognitive, and Teaching Presence.

Degree: PhD, College and Graduate School of Education, Health and Human Services / School of Lifespan Development and Educational Sciences, 2017, Kent State University

This mixed methods study examined student perceptions of social, cognitive, and teaching presence in a synchronous online environment based on participation in the environment, how the synchronous online environment affects social, cognitive, and teaching presence, and what aspects of teaching presence in an online synchronous environment support and enhance social and cognitive presence. Participants were students at a large, multi-campus community college enrolled in distance learning, blended learning, and web-enhanced courses. They attended either a live synchronous online session (n = 104) or viewed a recording of a live session (n = 65). Independent sample t tests compared the groups studied followed by correlation analyses to examine teaching presence as a predictor of social and cognitive presence. The quantitative results showed that students who participated in the live online synchronous sessions exhibited more positive perceptions of social and cognitive presences than those who viewed a recording of the session. Open, axial, and selective coding of the qualitative data produced findings that uncovered the themes of connection, confidence and transference among the participants’ experiences in both groups. The study has implications for understanding the potential that online synchronous technologies have in establishing social, cognitive, and teaching presences for initiating a community of inquiry in the online environment. Advisors/Committee Members: Ingram, Albert (Committee Co-Chair), Novak, Elena (Committee Co-Chair).
