"VOLLEYING": IMPLICATIONS

The findings in this survey suggest that:

  • students are conscious of seeking variety as a means of improving discussion
  • there is consciousness of strategies to improve discussion and to improve community
  • once again, students show that they have adopted the posting vocabulary
  • once again, students see that discussion advances thinking
  • some higher level responses like weaving probably cannot be forced and probably will be rare
  • students recognize that the more steps in the discussion cycle, the more important the serve is
  • community responsibility does not yet extend to providing a reason for or an acknowledgment of absence for not posting
  • dead-end posts are still a problem and deserve more attention to ways to avoid them
