Interactivity in Virtual Learning Groups: Theories, Strategies, and the State of Literature

Jessica Cara Ng
Abstract—The existence and survival of virtual learning groups (VLGs) depends upon the satisfaction, learning, and retention of their students. This paper reviews literature that offers strategies for effective teaching and learning in VLGs, focusing on major theoretical perspectives about interactivity. It identifies gaps, shortfalls, and conflicts in extant research on virtual education and suggests next steps scholars should take to make literature and research in this area more robust.

Index Terms—Education technology, interactivity, virtual learning, virtual learning groups.
