The Audience in Online Speaking
The Communication Blog
MAY 20, 2018
The following post was sent to the basic course list (Basiccc@lists.udayton.edu) in response to a number of instructors explaining how they incorporated the live audience in an online public speaking course. Many (perhaps most), it seems, require the student to deliver the speech in front of a live audience which must be video scanned. If the aim of this requirement is to give the student practice in analyzing and adapting to an audience, it falls short.
