2011 (English)In: International Conference on Information Communication Technologies in Education, Rhodes, Greece, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
One of the challenges of using discussion forums in a computer-mediated learning environment is getting students to contribute. Some discussion threads develop while others do not. The present study concerns factors affecting response rate. This presentation deals with response patterns and the strategies that teachers and students may consider using in order to increase the chance of getting a response to a message posted in an asynchronous discussion forum.
