Att kommunicera på distans: En kvalitativ studie

Abstract [en]

With the advancement of technology there are more ways to teach than by means of traditional classroom lessons. Since the education can be made mobile, students don’t need to be tied up to a specific time or place. The purpose of this thesis is to try to answer questions about how students in distance education experience the communication and what the advantages and disadvantages are. To answer this, eight distance education students were interviewed and the interviews were transcribed and interpreted. The results show that the interviewees often used mail and nonverbal chats to communicate with each other and with teachers, which meant that it could be difficult to arrive at joint decisions within groups but also difficult to interpret and understand other people. In order to optimize the communication in distance studies, the students and teachers should communicate synchronically with some amount of verbal communication. Distance communication should preferably be conducted via video chat so that they do not miss non-verbal clues, which reveal much in a Face-to-Face (FtF) conversation. By making the conversations more personal and sharing personal information about themselves with their fellow students the connection within the class and the groups improves.
