Facilitating Online Discussions

Answer: 58,956. Question: How many separate posts did GTU users post in Moodle during the Spring 2013 semester. Surprised?  At the GTU, many instructors include forums in our classes; after posting files, it is the way we use Moodle the most. But quantity, of course, is never enough. What makes for a vigorous online discussion that supports your learning objectives for a class? Simmons College has posted an online interview with professor Sarah Haavind about Facilitating Online Discussions.
