In the first couple of days and weeks in a course how does the instructor engage with the student?  Is the faculty present in the course?  How does he/she define that presence is there a complete profile of who the instructor is, his/her teaching interests, education and background?  Is it professional?   How does the instructor encourage students to engage with each other?
