What is Online Communication

  • Any kind of communication between either individuals or organizations that occurs on the internet.

..

).

Advantages  Flexibility : accessible 24/7, any place as long as you have an internet connection

Advantages

  • Flexibility: accessible 24/7, any place as long as you have an internet connection

  • Levelling: reserved people who usually don’t speak up can say as much as they like while “loud” people are just another can’t interrupt

  • Documented: unlike verbal conversation, online discussion is lasting and can be revisited

  • Encourages reflection: participants don’t have to contribute until they’ve thought about the issue and feel ready

 Relevance : provides a place for real life examples and experience to be exchanged 
  • Relevance: provides a place for real life examples and experience to be exchanged

  • Choice: a quick question or comment, or a long reflective account are equally possible

  • Community: over time can develop into a supportive, stimulating community which participants come to regard as the high point of their course

  • Limitless: you can never predict where the discussion will go; the unexpected often results in increased incidental learning

Disadvantages  Text-based : Predominantly relies on inputting text which can be challenging for those who

Disadvantages

  • Text-based: Predominantly relies on inputting text which can be challenging for those who don’t like to write or have poor keyboard skills, but with the advance of broadband connectivity and voice and video conference technology this will be less of an issue.

  • No physical cues: without facial expressions and gestures or the ability to retract immediately there’s a big risk of misunderstanding

  • Information overload: a large volume of messages can be overwhelming and hard to follow, even stress-inducing

  • Threads: logical sequence of discussion is often broken by users not sticking to the topic (thread)

 Time lag : even if you log on daily, 24 hours can seem like a
  • Time lag: even if you log on daily, 24 hours can seem like a long time if you’re waiting for a reply; and then the discussion could have moved on and left you behind

  • Inefficient: it takes longer than verbal conversation and so it’s hard to reply to all the points in a message, easily leaving questions unanswered

  • Isolation: some learners prefer to learn on their own and don’t participate in the discussions

  • Directionless: participants used to have a teacher or instructor telling them what to do can find it a leaderless environment
