This report reviews data from student end-of-course assessments, which, in part, evaluate instructor effectiveness. One finding of this review indicates that one online instructor who interacted with her students according to the students’ individual personality type was consistently rated as very effective by her students. This paper briefly summarizes some of the personality types used by the online professor and discusses several ways that other online professors can implement this approach in their own teaching.
