Duration: 20 minutes
It is important to use best practices in online discussions because threaded discussions are becoming increasingly common in online courses. The session will present best practices in using online discussions from related literature, from the presenter’s personal experience in teaching 100 online courses since 2000, and from actual student feedback in those courses. The results include how and when students participate in online discussions and what students think about online discussions. The expected outcome of the presentation is that attendees will gain an enhanced knowledge of best practices in using online discussions.
