Abstract

Engaging students in substantive discussions in an online course is challenging. The literature suggests many techniques for encouraging participation (Collison et al, 2000; Edwards,2005; Paloff & Pratt, 1999; Stemwedel, 2005). One way to enhance participation may include having students serve as online class moderators (Brescia & Miller, 2005; Murphy et al, 2005; Stemwedel,2005;). This paper will address a study about the role, effectiveness and satisfaction of having student moderators in an online course.
