Abstract: An instructor’s teaching presence affects students’ feelings of social presence and connectivity in distance education, pointing to an opportunity for intentional orchestrations of class members’ social experience. To explore such opportunities, we interviewed instructors about what and how they see community from their online teaching experiences. In this paper, we characterize the presence and nature of the community that instructors see in their distance education classes. We highlighted the strategies instructors used in an online environment that support both synchronous and asynchronous collaborative learning. Design implications for sociable learning environments are discussed.
