Setting up and managing a good online discussion can be time-consuming. When is it useful enough to justify the time and trouble? A two-page briefing paper by Sonia Bartoluzzi and Peter Goodyear addresses this issue, as well as what students value and dislike in online discussions, and how to set appropriate expectations. Follow the link for the full paper in the TELL Pattern Book, pp. 34-36.
