Description

An interactive, asynchronous forum makes an excellent alternative classroom for graduate learning. Earlier experience as a reader and writer do not suffice for maximizing the potential of the forum for higher-level learning based, in large measure, upon meaningful discussion. This paper shares the pragmatic, research-based experiences of graduate students who strived for better communication as co-moderators and participants in short, three-week online discussions.
