This is part one of my presentation on designing and implementing action research for online students. This video begins with an introduction to online learning and gives the background information needed to understand how and why an online course was used for instruction and collaboration while performing action research outside the United States. This successful research took place online, and in Nicaragua. Part two of the presentation will cover the observation and data collection and will highlight how the learning management system aided the action research process. In part three, one will see the results of the research.
