Abstract

The success or failure of an asynchronous computer conference as part of a distance education course is largely dependent upon the abilities of the moderator of the conference. This paper discusses various skills and responsibilities of a moderator. It includes a discussion of ineffective moderation and how to avoid making common mistakes by examining skills used by effective moderators to enhance, enliven, and assist students to bring meaning to the discussion in an atmosphere of warmth and mutual support.
