This resource was developed from a SATLE 2018 Initiative: Enhancing the digital teaching capabilities of experienced online instructors and the digital learning capabilities of their students .

Using interaction to build vibrant live online classes is an essential aspect of teaching and learning in an era of remote and online learning. Interaction in live classes helps to promote a sense of belonging and enhances learning through feedback and dialogue. Interaction is a shared endeavour which requires co-production between educators and students to flourish.

This project asked educators and students to share their experiences of online learning to identify what interaction looks like in an online class and what behaviours can enhance interaction.
