Linguistic LingField(s):  Applied Linguistics

Query:   I'm having trouble finding studies that compare the sort of interactions
that are endemic to traditional classrooms (primarily speaking and
listening, with the teacher having immense power over the interaction)
to those that tend to emerge in online classes (primarily writing and
reading, with a strong emphasis on collaboration between students and
individualized student engagement). Can anybody recommend some
sources, whether they be case studies or overarching analyses?

My linguistic training is primarily in anthropological linguistics rather
than pragmatics, so I apologize if this turns out to be a naive question.
I'm actually trying to prepare an online linguistic anthropology course
and figured I might as well extend my expertise in order to better
design it. I will post a summary of responses in a timely manner.
