Abstract

Supporting face-to-face courses by synchronous and asynchronous discussions is known as a new application. The asynchronous communications environments are particular due to they do not require a common time or place for students and teachers. The asynchronous discussion sessions help students access and share information in remote places, have more time to search on the issue and improve retention rates. The purpose of this study is to explore how student teachers perceive discussing through the use of asynchronous online discussions as a support in face to face course. The data were collected through open-ended survey questions, semi-structured interviews and forum transcripts and analyzed using qualitative measures.
