Abstract [en]

The study   investigates how social presence and different tools of communication used by   the students at the IT-distance programme Informatics with Focus on Systems   Development at Mid Sweden University affects the quality of communication and   how the quality of communication can be improved. The data for the study is   collected from six semistructured interviews, the participants are students   taking the sixth and last term at the programme. Parts of the questions used   during interviews derive from the framework Community of Inquiry (CoI) by   Randy Garrison, Terry Anderson and Walter Archer. CoI is a framework for   measuring three types of presence: Cognitive presence, Teaching presence and   Social presence. The purpose of the framework is to measure when deep and   meaningful learning arise in education.

What quality of   communication is, is described by the students participating in the   interviews, which means that a certain breadth of different interpretations   are explained and summarized. The result of the study consists partly of   quantitative data that comes from the questions received from the CoI-survey   and qualitative data from questions where students responded freely. Through   interviews and analysis, a number of proposals are presented on how the   quality of communication can be improved.
