The proposed framework identifies three core elements, respectively teacher presence, learner presence and technology presence. On the individual level, these elements are subdivided and specified. Teachers presence incorporates student-centred, personalised, and collaborative pedagogical models to design learning in technology-facilitated environments, facilitating the learning process by promoting.
