Another factor that seems to strongly help people persist is opportunities for interaction with peers and the instructor. This points to the need to design good social interactions. There’s a host of writings about how to do this, especially in higher education discussion forums and the virtual classroom. I’ve written plenty of these myself so seek and ye shall find. But what about self-paced eLearning? These typically don’t have social interactions! And we know that there are issues with persistence in self-paced eLearning. How do we help people persist there? I’m looking for gems in these articles that we can apply here.
