- A sense of class community is job one for me.
- The visible heart of the learning community is the discussion board.
- Action on the discussion board is like a game of non-competitive racquetball or tennis.
- The art of writing on the discussion board is to keep the conversation going.
- The purpose of responding to others on the discussion board is to add value to the conversation.
- Discussion boards are the most undervalued of the new technologies.
