Re: Why Use Online Forums in Teaching?

Useful video ... but are there any that suggest why Forums are good for oncampus students ... I find it very hard to convince students to use them - they'd rather talk to staff / other students & only find forums (and email!) useful when they want a v. quick answer at odd hours ... then wonder why staff aren't reading them avidly
(OK; so that's a bit of an exaggeration, but you know what I mean!)

I liked the video, very useful. Forums are very useful but some people do not use it, maybe because they do not have time or not bothered to use it. [Comment] [Permalink]
