Greetings everyone,

I am trying to find a reference / support for the principle of having a face-to-face interaction (e.g. in-person residency period or classes) prior to the same cohort of students taking online courses together. In particular, I am looking to find whether there is evidence of impact on student participation in online discussions if they have met in person first, established getting to know one another  and then take the online course together. Please let me know if you know of any articles along this line.

Thanks in advance,
Ilana
