How to get students to participate in Online Discussions

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions | MOOCs and Online Learning | Scoop.it

Students’ participation in online discussions is central in online learning courses as it contributes to a participative and meaningful instruction where learners build their knowledge in a constructive way with instructors, colleagues, informal sources and by reflecting upon the process.

Debbie Morrison is posting a triplet series on how to create effective discussions in an online learning environment. In part I she presents components which make online discussions effective, namely:

 

1.  A solid course design 

2.  Guidelines and expectations for students  

3.  Well constructed topics/questions

4.  The existence of a skilled facilitator or moderator

5.  An assessment component
