Exploring Etudes Discussions: From Basics to Advanced Group Work

We all want to offer great stimulating interaction between our students in our online courses. To do this, we need an understanding of how to best use the Etudes Discussion Tool. This class will focus on the basic “nut-n-bolts” of discussions and then move on to explore the more advanced features of our discussion tool such as creating groups, group work, how discussions show up in Course Map and more. After we get a good feel for using the Discussion Tool, we will examine some creative uses for our discussions. An online discussion can do much more than just check if a student is paying attention and comprehending the material. This session will give us a better understanding of how to better use Discussions.
