One of the major criticisms of distance education is the perception of inferior interaction between professor and students. Although the question of sufficient interaction is just as valid in a traditional classroom setting, the very nature of distance education serves to exacerbate the problem. This doesn’t have to be the case. There are strategies an instructor can employ to ensure the interaction is maintained at a high level. In fact there is a type of distance learning structure where interaction is even higher than in a traditional classroom. This chapter will facilitate faculty in enriching the quality of the communication exchange by assisting professors in enhancing the “high touch” aspects of pedagogy when using “high tech” media.
