Abstract

Abstract: The importance of the dialogue and help seeking on learning have mostly emphasized by educational researchers. So, this paper reports results from a quantitative cross-sectional survey research study that was conducted to determine the types of dialogue utilized by online learners, identify the type of help the learners seek, and from whom they seek help. To address research questions, the researchers administered an online survey to 390 undergraduate students at a state university in Turkey enrolled in an online course. Findings indicated that (1) learners exhibited multidirectional dialogic behavior patterns (intrapersonal and interpersonal dialogues), (2) a large number of learners sought instrumental help, and (3) the majority of the learners sought informal help from their friends. Implications for future research are discussed.
