The extant literature on distance education indicates that research regarding interaction illustrates that different types of instructional design methods and delivery technologies allow differing degrees of interaction. While many studies on distance education have focused on the role of distance learners (e.g., leaner-centered instruction, learner's perceptions), there has been comparatively little focus on instructional design strategies and interactions used by distance learning instructors. Instructors in distance education share different sets of interactions from distance learners. This article discusses the results of a case study that identified and documented instructional design interactions used by selected instructors teaching at a distance.
