Question and answer
How do you get read only participants in a online class to fully participant in online discussions/
The article states that student participation in an online class significantly relates to successful completion. The article strongly encourages students to participate fully in an online class. [ The goal was to find a model to predict online success, since “drop-out rates for online courses range from 20 to 50%” (Bernard, Brauer, Abrami, & Surkes, 2004). Based on the authors’ findings, students that not only logged on regularly, but also communicated effectively with their classmates or the facilitator, were the ones who successfully completed the class. Those students who did
otherwise did not share in the success. Researchers used a learning management system (LMS) to track students’ contributions within online communities. The LMS reveled that some students do not realize the benefits of participating online, which was evident by their failure in the class. Students that listened but did not participate did not gain the same benefits as those who participated fully. Interacting with your peers can help eliminate the social isolation that online students often experience. These interactions insure students are a part of facilitator-controlled discussions. As the student participates they gain more knowledge of the material, and are able to contribute to the community more. Groups of students are better able to problem solve, as well as clarify ideas. “Well-facilitated online discussions can be more inclusive than classroom discussion by including introverted students and enabling better quality interaction” ]
