The Unresolved

What questions or problems or issues are still hanging?  Here are some things that I especially should give more thought to:

  • how can I help students respond to dead-end posts (e.g., a typology of difficult posts)?
  • what are fair posting timeframes and deadlines?
  • what is the optimum number of posts for optimum quality within a time period?
  • how connect in-class discussion and the discussion board?
  • how vivify community or lack of it in the very beginning?
  • how to deal with people who don't post, especially in sequenced activity?
  • do the three levels of the response options make sense?
  • how put a reasonable leash on the time it takes to manage an active discussion board?
