Verbal Immediacy and Social Presence Indicators in Asynchronous Discussion: A Graduate Level Cohort Experience

Lucille M. Freeman.

This report focuses on the online behaviors of a cohort group of teachers during the second year of their common study leading to a masters in curriculum and instruction as they worked in an online cohort class setting.

Data relating to verbal immediacy and social presence indicators in asynchronous discussion was examined to determine the degree to which statements posted were associated with development of individual presence, a sense of community and academic interaction among cohort members.
