I think this is from the Blackboard people; nevertheless it has some guidance on using Discussion boards which was helpful to me.

The Art and Science of Successful Online Discussions

The Art and Science of Successful Online Discussions | Developing Dynamic eLearning Course Content | Scoop.it
Faculty use asynchronous discussions to extend and enhance instructional practices in the online classroom. It is widely reported that online discussions play an integral role in facilitating students’ learning, as well as fostering dialogue, critical thinking, and reflective inquiry (Kayler & Weller, 2007; Morris, Finnegan, & Sz-Shyan, 2005). Despite faculty’s knowledge that discussion forums can serve as a useful learning tool, online discussions are not easy to establish and manage.

Classes taught with facilitated discussion (a great step beyond simple Q&A) are the gold standard of online teaching and learning.


Solid references for this short read on the gold standard!

We can do it but we have to do it right.

Deborah Eastwood's curator insight, August 20, 2014 11:00 PM

If you teach on-line it is critical that you understand how to best use the discussion board. There are times we want to guide the discussion and times when we should allow students to carry the weight. One common mistake instructors make in the online classroom is to attempt to drive every conversation. Occasionally students may need to take charge in order to learn the material.

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’ | Developing Dynamic eLearning Course Content | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

 

"The August 2014 edition of the Australian-based journal, Distance Education (Vol.35, No. 2.), is devoted to new research on MOOCs. There is a guest editor, Kemi Jona, from Northwestern University, Illinois, as well as the regular editor, Som Naidu.
The six articles in this edition are fascinating, both in terms of their content, but even more so in their diversity. There are also three commentaries, by Jon Baggaley, Gerhard Fischer and myself."

The Art of the Discussion Prompt

The Art of the Discussion Prompt | Developing Dynamic eLearning Course Content | Scoop.it

By Alex Joppie: Discussions are sometimes called the engine of an online course. Discussions provide an opportunity for students to engage with the course content, with each other, and with you—the professor—simultaneously, which means they have a lot of potential for meaningful learning and high retention.

 

There is no guarantee that students will really apply themselves by just creating a discussion. What you get out of a discussion assignment depends on what you put into it. Here are some tips for writing your discussion prompt, selecting your settings, and participating in the discussion.
