Student participation and interaction with peers and the course instructor are essential qualities for any successful accounting online class. An experienced instructor from a private, residential university implemented a variety of techniques to encourage student interaction during online courses. Strategic approaches encouraging active participation and developing a sense of “warmth” were created for the instructor’s Governmental/Not-for-Profit accounting online classes. These approaches can be applied to any online accounting course.
