ABSTRACT
The article discusses how Philip Ice of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte improved communication between teachers and students in online courses. Ice researched whether audio communication would improve student understanding of teachers' comments better than text-based feedback. Students indeed reported having an easier time understanding feedback because they could hear the intonation in their teachers' voices that helped them to decode meaning.
