UCL Teaching and Learning Network (TLN)

2009 - 2010 Meetings

Online Discussion


Moodle makes it easy to incorporate a discussion forum into a course but it is
much harder to ensure that students make the most of it - particularly when they have the option of communicating face-to-face.

Presenters were Jill Russell (Primary Care and Population Health/Medical Education) and Holly Smith (CALT). They outlined their experiences of using computer conferencing and discussed ways to make asynchronous discussion work in distance learning and campus-based, blended learning courses.
