Abstract: This paper addresses the rapid increase in online program delivery of college courses and examines the lag in faculty development and training in effective strategies to deliver online courses. In particular, this paper examines the importance of a sense of community and interaction in online courses and offers practical strategies for the online practitioner. Similar to on-ground classroom interactions and simulations, online learning can replicate comparable dynamics and interactions. Student to instructor interactions and student to student interactions serve as the foundation to increasing community and learning in virtual environments.
