How Habitual Online Practices Affect the Development of Asynchronous Discussion Threads
ARTICLE

Abstract

Discussions of distance education courses develop according to needs/interests of conference participants, course requirements, and nature of the instructor's online facilitation. Findings of this research suggest other factors. Analysis of threads and their growth patterns reveals a bias in favor of elongated note structures, explained by a tendency for computer conference users to focus on recently introduced notes and a reduced tendency to revisit older, more established notes.
