Humor in Online Teaching. Risks and rewards of using humor in distance learning—and why some professors wrestle with online levity

It means what is appealing to some may be unattractive to others. This can also apply to humor in online teaching. What makes one laugh can make another cringe or have no emotional response at all. The art of making a person laugh is just that--an art.
