Abstract: Online instructors must accommodate the visual, verbal, and auditory learning style needs of different generations of learners (Meyer & McNeal, 2011). To help Generations X, Y, and Z transfer effective elements of the traditional writing and communication process, online instructors must rethink how to use conventional best practices for online writing and communications (Edwards-Grove, 2012). Online writing and communication skills must be modeled and become more of an interactive, learning style based presentation rather than a process.
