Hi Mark,
I agree it takes much more "work" to achieve this effect online...it is just not as simple as f2f contact; I think it can be done, but participants may or may not be inclined to put that much effort into it as they might be f2f, so it is hard to know if you have ever really achieved the learning locale in the same way. Typing in itself is hard work for some, so just that one aspect could affect the students....never-mind, content, tone, critical thinking skills, etc.....it is a very interesting topic...
