Campaign to promote use and understanding of the Discussion Board
Schelly Gardner from Southern Cross University
Students, Communication, Collaboration
The goal here is to increase the use of Discussion Boards by students once instructors have enabled them. Using the Discussion Board increases collaboration and discussion and improves the overall learning experience for students, when used correctly.
Students are aware of how to use the Discussion Board. You can place a monitor on the use of Discussion Boards to see if usage increases.
This message explains to students how the Discussion Board works. It is a step-by-step breakdown within the message which lets students know how to add to a thread, whether editing is possible after submitting, and how to alter the display of the board.
