The Essentials

I now see that, in sequence, the following key one-liners taken or paraphrased from this report encapsulate the essence of the project:
  • 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.
