Abstract: Social presence can build greater cognitive presence within online courses when carefully planned with appropriate strategies. Multiple synchronous and asynchronous webconferencing strategies are still emerging in the today’s field of online learning. This session presents current best practice techniques in using asynchronous and synchronous webconferencing strategies for online courses. The authors will present a brief review of current best practices in the field, as well as student and professor-led emergent designs they have used in collaborative research-based designs.
