Extending Classroom Discussion with Discussion Boards: Using Technology to Meet the Needs of Diverse Learners
Discussion boards are Web 2.0 tools that can extend classroom learning. The purpose of this study is to analyze the discussion board dialogue and student perceptions of discussion board use of five graduate classes on two campuses. Are there similarities in student perceptions about discussion board use? Data from class discussion board dialogues, open-ended and Likert survey questions were collected and analyzed for common trends and themes. Results of the statistical analysis will be discussed with the hope that there will be a dialogue with those present at the session so that we can exchange ideas and learn from each other.
