Community of Inquiry

The Equivalency Theorem, Modes of Interaction, and  Community of Inquiry (CoI) are interrelated in Terry Anderson’s conceptual development.   The COI model with its familiar venn diagram showing the intersections of the 3 key components of online education – teaching presence, social presence and cognitive presence was developed by Randy Garrison, Terry Anderson and Walter Archer at the University of Alberta.

The E-Quiv theories were developed later by Terry, as response to the economic costs and the prescriptive nature of educational systems that maximize all three presences.
