OSCQR: Regular & Substantive Interaction

New regulatory definitions of distance education require that institutions ensure regular and substantive interaction (RSI) between a student and an instructor(s). A multi-pronged approach is necessary to address this including faculty and instructional designer training, improvements in online course design and facilitation, and online course reviews and refreshes to ensure compliance.

Strategies to Support Online Academic Integrity

Cheating is a pedagogical issue, not a technological one. Faulting students and technology, and attempting to apply a one size fits all approach, or tech. solution to a pedagogical problem, misses the point and the opportunity to understand this issue from the learning and learner perspectives. It is complex and requires work on everyone’s part – administrators, faculty, and students. So, from an instructional design perspective, rather than starting with the question “How do we prevent cheating?” the better questions are “What exactly is it that you are trying to achieve? And what, pedagogically, is the best way to assess, or evaluate learning, given the options and limitations of the online environment?”
