Very useful and concise, and can be used as a handout in a workshop introducing faculty to online discussions, or in a one-on-one meeting with a faculty member planning to use them. However, requires the "faculty developer" to share examples where these strategies actually have worked, and to back up the claims in the table.

Superb list that should be posted at every computer of every online instructor!! The only thing missing was a reference to a grading rubric for discussion questions. All too often I see online instructors throw out questions for students to answer with absolutely no guidelines. Students soon become frustrated and bored, and then the instructors wonder why there is no interaction!!! Instructors also need to monitor the discussions and throw in a comment or two to let the students know that it IS important (and why). The point about helping students understand how to tie their comments to the content is EXTREMELY important! <
