Post strategically and keep these tips to keep in mind:

  • Do not comment on every student posting. Allow students time to participate and develop their conversations with each other without too much interaction, comments, feedback, or analysis from you.
  • Intervene if you see the discussion either lacking progress or moving off-track.
  • If you see a particularly goodpost, make a quick comment about it so that students will learn to recognize and repeat such quality.
  • If you see a particularly poor post, contact that student independently to provide additional guidance and encouragement.
