Abstract

Online courses provide a format for learning content, enhancing knowledge, and developing skills. A key contributor to the success of learning is through interpersonal interaction; therefore, online student interaction must be an important component to online courses. The discussion forum is often the foundation of online courses and the place to develop a positive, quality place for optimal participation and interpersonal interaction for learning. Online discussion forums are effective instructional strategies providing a rich environment for learning content, feedback, and assessment. The primary issue is to develop strategies and structures that contribute to quality interaction and learning through the online discussion forum. This paper provides key processes for developing quality online discussion forums based on research and experience from teaching online for almost two decades.
