Abstract

This study compared how undergraduate students in an introductory computer engineering course (n=152) and an introductory educational technology course (n=309) at a large Midwestern university responded to the use of supplementary online discussions in their courses. Data were collected via online surveys and course discussion boards. After participating in two-five online discussions, students shared their perceptions regarding the usefulness of the discussions to their learning. Students described both benefits and limitations and provided suggestions for using discussions in more meaningful ways.
