Abstract

The current study investigated the relationship between psychological factors and learning behaviors related to the application of a community of inquiry (CoI) framework for learning English as a foreign language (EFL). An online asynchronous discussion was examined, and data included questionnaires assessing perceived psychological factors and communication logs related to the efficacy of the CoI. Results of a path analysis showed that perceived social presence plays an important role in enhancing perceived cognitive presence, which indirectly increases social interaction and deeper discussions.
