Studies have shown that the single greatest factor affecting student satisfaction in distance education courses is the amount of interaction that occurs between teacher and students. New technologies have expanded the potential for interaction between students and instructors, but meaningful interaction that contributes to student growth and learning requires careful planning on the part of the instructor. Two sections of a graduate level instructional technology course delivered via video teleconferencing and online instruction were examined for instructional strategies that were used to build interaction. In addition, the effectiveness of the strategies and student responses to the interaction were explored.
