Paulsen, Morten Flate – “Online Teaching Techniques”, in Online Education and Learning Management Systems – Global E-learning in a Scandinavian Perspective, 2003 NKI Forlaget
“This article presents experiences with teaching techniques that were found in the literature and that were recommended by some of the 150 online teachers that were interviewed about their experiences with teaching techniques.”
In this article, Morten Paulsen begins by giving an overview of the teaching techniques discussed in CMC literature and presents a Framework for online teaching techniques, based on the type of interaction used (one – online; one to one; one to many; many to many). It is a very interesting article which congregates the mainly used teaching techniques in online learning environments, based on “The Online Report on Pedagogical Techniques for Computer-Mediated Communication” from 1995.
