SCC 101 Week 2 Discussion: Discussion Board 2
Discussion board assignments are an important part of the online learning environment. Discussion boards allow students to interact with the instructor and their peers on topics related to the course, as well as help to build a sense of community in an online learning environment.
Discussion boards also give students the opportunity to practice netiquette (online etiquette) and to increase academic writing skills.
For this week’s discussion board, read the article, “Writing A+ Discussion Posts in Online Courses.” (Links to an external site.)
After reviewing the article, discuss the following questions in your discussion post:
1. What do you find the most challenging about online discussions and why?
2. The article lists five (5) common pitfalls in online discussions. What do you feel is the most common pitfall and why?
Reply to at least two peer posts.
Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly, using at least 150-200 words, and respond to as many of your peers as possible. Note that responses to 2 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!
