Abstract

Many best practices exist for facilitating online class discussion. Yet, there seems to be a general lack of both student engagement and quality participation. This paper explores the current research in online discussion from the perspective of types of interactions, quality of those interactions, and the impact of computer mediated communication on those interactions. An examination of best practices leads to suggestion for future research.
