Abstract

With the advent of the technology, online discussion, one of the computer-mediated communication (CMC) typologies, is regarded as an easy, effective way to allow learners to communicate mutually and construct their knowledge independent of time and geographical constraints. This study attempted to answer the following two questions: (1) to understand the feasibility and acceptance of discussion forums via Moodle, and (2) to examine interactional discourse patterns in online discussions. A total of eighty-two students coming from one university participated in this study. The results were positive. Theoretical and pedagogical detailed implications for conducting computer-mediated communication were addressed in the conclusion for further research.
