Discussion board assignments were conducted entirely on the FSO platform and not student blogs, but students often recorded their responses and exchanges on their blog for future reference. Discussion boards served to continue the conversation that began with the reading and projects and worked its way through class sessions, blog posts and discussion boards. Student were expect to make an initial post and then make two follow-up comment posts on their classmates’ discussion board post. “Online Learning…” I’m sure you get it.
