Abstract
With the increased adoption of online education, it has become vital for counselor educators to consider the use of online education and technologies that support this form of education. This study considers the use of both synchronous and asynchronous technologies in online counselor education and other helping profession courses. Results of the causal comparative design suggested that online students who used a combination of technologies had statistically significantly higher levels of social presence than the students who used only asynchronous No difference in cognitive presence, teacher presence, and perceived learning was found between the two groups.
