Abstract

 

This article presents information drawn from research on brain processes that impact perception, memory, learning, and understandings about the world. This information is related to the use of interactive video and the Web in distance education through a discussion of how best to enhance learning - or mitigate problems caused - through the use of these technologies.

Connection through emotions in an online environment takes some extra effort on everyone's part. For me, personal teaching stories help convey humor, empathy, along with the curriculum content.  


Having a lounge where folks can swap pictures of kids and pets might appeal to our brains limbic centers as well!

Developing trust and reciprocal awareness among virtual student teams is essential in effective group formation and performance - particularly in short-duration, high-stakes projects.
