Study: Online students want more interaction with instructors - Keith Button, Education Dive

A survey of 250 college students taking online courses found that they miss the personal interactions they enjoy with professors during in-person classes. The study was conducted at Kent State University, which has 16,000 students — 40% of the total enrollment — taking 1,200 classes online. The survey also included 60 professors. One conclusion from the survey: Professors should make sure that they communicate more with students in online classes and reach out proactively, instead of just uploading assignments. http://www.educationdive.com/news/study-online-students-want-more-interaction-with-instructors/361952/
