This semester I have incorporated an activity into my online courses. Students are required to facilitate the online discussion board for one or two weeks, depending on which course they are in. We use an online learning platform called Blackboard, but there are a number of different platforms available.
Here is a handy 1-page resource I created to help my students develop and facilitate great questions that enhance learning, keep participants focussed and encourage in-depth online discussions.
