As our understanding of online learning communities has grown, we have realized that one size does not fit all. Consequently, paying attention to diversity when designing and delivering a class can only support the successful achievement of learning objectives for all members. We deal first with learning style, an important issue that has often been discussed in relationship to the delivery of both face-to-face and online instruction. 1. INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR FACILITATING STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY IN ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITIES.

I have been handling this course like the other many I have taken; trying to stay within a week or so of being on target while trying to provide quality responses when I respond (and of course I fell behind). I admit that I have not really thought about this course from a team perspective, but rather from an individual perspective of learning all that I can and responding to discussion when I can. I am a loner by nature so it does not excite me to engage in face-to-face or online discussion and debate.

Consequently, the virtual student needs to be encouraged to reflect through direct questions. Also, space must be provided in the course to allow for reflection on the various aspects of online learning. We always create a discussion forum in our courses for reflection and encourage students to post their thoughts there as they go. The reflections may include what they have learned about the courseware in use. They may reflect on the application of a piece of learning to their lives or on the significance of something they have read or found on the Internet.
