This article suggests that educators consider meeting students where they are. Frustrated by students' lack of engagement in WebCT discussion forums, Schroeder and Greenbowe tried something else with an organic chemistry class: a course Facebook group. Although not all students joined the optional group, participation among those who did was far more dynamic than activity in the WebCT group.
