Student Perceptions of Important Online Instructor Behaviors in Online Courses
Online instructors engage in many behaviors in online courses. They take deliberate actions to design effective learning environments that engage students both cognitively and affectively. Not all of the actions are qualitatively equal in terms of their impact on student success in online learning. The purpose of this study was to determine what instructor behaviors students considered most important for their own success.
