“One Hour Classroom = One Hour Online – Same or Different?”

It is generally recognised that teaching online is significantly different from teaching in the classroom but we still expect our online students to achieve the same learning outcomes. This short discussion raises the question – How can we interact with students online to enhance their learning?

“A Stitch in Virtual Time: Creative Threaded Discussions”

If students are to stay connected as a virtual learning community there are some things that will help. Three examples of using forums in a vibrant and valuable way are presented. How these forums promote learning and key principles related to the role and participation of the module leader, are also considered.
