Abstract

Appropriate interaction is one criterion of quality of online courses. The importance of interaction in online education is well documented in research findings; explained in various theoretical approaches and models; and highlighted in best practices from consortia, accrediting agencies, and by practitioners. Despite the availability of guides for quality assessment of online courses, a concern arises when program administrators are faced with the questions: What does appropriate interaction in an online course mean and how does one show evidence of it? How does one guide the implementation of appropriate interaction in order to meet recommended quality guidelines or accreditation standards? To partially answer these questions, this chapter proposes a framework to guide the assessment of appropriate interaction as a criterion of quality online course based on accreditation quality guidelines.
