With the Federal call for regular and substantive interactions, the big questions become, "are we doing enough in our online courses" and "what do our students think"? This session will discuss the finding of research conducted at a mid-sized university using an adapted Community of Inquiry survey, with the focus on instructor presence. Two similar surveys were administered to both faculty and students who either taught or were taking an online course. The findings from this research will be compared and shared. The findings will also be paired with current best practices to provide possible resolutions for regular and substantive interactions.
