Digital Literacy: The Do's and Don'ts of an A+ Discussion Post

digital-literacy-discussion-postsIf you’ve never taken an online class, you may be wondering how exactly they recreate the exchange of ideas between students found in classroom discussions. The best answer schools have at this time is to have students write discussion posts. With these posts, students are typically prompted with a question from their instructor to answer and get a conversation started. Unfortunately, the nature of these message boards will never quite be as fluid as a spoken conversation; however an online discussion can be more substantive and well thought-out.
