Abstract

The study focuses on interpersonal interaction in “CEIT 566 Telecommunication and Educational Applications” which is an online course opened in METU in Turkey. A content analysis research was conducted on online discussion forum logs of the course. The use of personal pronouns and names as addressing pronouns were statistically measured as they are asserted to be strong indicators of interpersonal interactivity in the literature. Gender difference in the selection of personal pronouns was also considered.
