Homework

Read the following website ( http://communitiesofinquiry.com/introduction ) on Communities of Learning, specifically definitions of what cognitive presence, teaching presence and social presence are about. In class, we will be adding to our evaluation of an immersive environment (http://www.encorewiki.org/display/KMDI2003/Evaluate-an-Immersive-Environment )  based on our discussion from last weeks showcase. In addition, please come to class prepared to give a brief (2-3 minutes) verbal summative evaluation on a particular immersive environment of your choice, or, if you prefer, follow the link below and choose one from the list of IE's we've compiled:
