—Student and teacher engagement is an ongoing
issue in online learning environments. Specifically
demonstration and assessment of evidenced generic skill
development of students is problematic. Most practitioners rely
on basic tools for facilitating online such as discussion boards
and chat rooms. This paper builds on the latter method and is
presented in an illustrative case study analysis. The case is of a
nationally recognised undergraduate online program which
provides educational practitioners with tangible examples
illustrating the implementation of pedagogical concepts and
theories for online teaching.
