Abstract

The success of students' learning experiences in online discussion boards is highly dependent on the instructional design of the course and the specific tasks required in these online discussions. The purpose of this round table is to promote a discussion of what makes online discussion boards successful in terms of student learning. To that end, we will (1) provide a theoretical foundation for inquiry-based instructional designs for online discussions; (2) provide an example of using guided inquiry in a fully online course in English; and, (3) provide an example of an inquiry-based discussion board used as a final exam in an Education course.
