Abstract

The importance of establishing an inviting atmosphere through written communication is essential in online instruction. Since written communication is the primary format for teacher/ student interaction, instructors must be knowledgeable about their word choice in feedback and the effect on students. Online instructors' tone in written communication in feedback may influence students' perceptions of: (a) encouragement; (b) community; and (c) continued participation in the course/program. These factors may be managed through faculty knowledge and awareness of the impact on how word choice in written communication may be perceived by students.
