The research design was based on the Community of Inquiry framework survey involving 32 third-year undergraduates majoring in TESL (Teaching of English as a Second Language). Pearson r correlational analysis was used to determine the relationship between teaching presence, social presence, cognitive presence and course satisfaction.
