The Importance of Timely Feedback to Interactivity in Online Education

Abstract : This paper discusses the main factors that influence interactivity in online education. The literature points out that time to feedback in education is one of the factors which affect communication among people. Therefore, we did a survey in which participated 67 teachers and 105 students in all. As a result, it was noticed that the level of interactivity students perceived lessens as the time to feedback increases. Also, teachers who give fast feedback review the course as having excellent interactivity. Offering more creative/dynamic activities, giving faster feedback to students, and encouraging students to participate more often in the Virtual Learning Environment are crucial to improving interactivity in Distance Education.
