Designing to Promote Interaction in Online Learning
While online learning is convenient as it gives the students the opportunity of being flexible, many learners suffer from feeling isolated or disconnected from the community. To promote interaction in online learning, we add a new feature to the traditional system, Tele-Instruction, which enables students to interact with the instructor at their convenience. The system provides the possibility of peer and content interaction and can use machine learning algorithms to improve lecture quality.
Learning Objectives:
Compare&contrast interaction in traditional OLS and the system that benefits from Tele-Instruction
Plan to integrate Tele-Inclusion into the course development to promote interaction
Distinguish crucial importance of even a 10-min interaction with instructor from student pointofview

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at CSUEB.
I have had excellent opportunities to teach and instruct undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of computer science and computer engineering courses. I believe the teaching profession is not just to help students in learning the course concepts fundamentally, but also to support, motivate, and inspire them to solve problems, recognize and improve their potentials and talents.
