Social interaction is a driving force in the behaviors and interests of Net Gen learners. Not surprisingly, alienation and isolation are primary reasons students drop or stop enrolling in online courses. This session provides rationale for the use of live e-learning tools in online courses to bridge the isolation students often feel. While these tools keep the learners involved and participative by providing a sense of community, they nevertheless present challenges in the initial stages of implementation. Multiple suggestions for overcoming inevitable technology glitches and management challenges faced when implementing live e-learning strategies will be discussed. Ideas for monitoring the effectiveness of e-discourse, attributes of genuine social interactions versus pseudo dialogues, and social cohesiveness in live e-learning classes will also be discussed. A demonstration of live e-learning will provide insight into the dynamics of using this tool in an online environment.
