In a distance-learning environment, giving feedback face-to-face can be different because of interpretation.  Face-to-face feedback allows a classmate the opportunity to express themselves through emotions such as  sarcasm, humor, or sincerity. Using written communication can extract some of the emphasis used in social  interaction. Verbal communication allows the personality to reflect with words while using a written  communication can make it difficult to decipher between words. In a written format, a classmate could use the  phrase, “You’re such a retard.” The written communication only comes across to the person receiving the  conversation one way. In a face-to-face communication, it could mean several things depending on how the  person said it, the type of body language used, and nonverbal cues used to communicate. In my opinion, the distance element of learning leaves room for vulnerability in communication. Written
