Abstract

This paper presents the author’s experiences of online-communication design in Web-based courses, and examines whether different online-communication design—in terms of its format, frequency, and range—would change students’ motivation to online learning, and influence their communication performances. Two online communication designs were used: (a) single-layer design, and (b) multiple-layer design. Data were collected from a sample of 112 education major students who were taking online courses. Paired t-tests were performed. Results showed that online communications with multiple-layer design may lead to higher scores on both.
