Abstract

The purpose of this ongoing study is to compare student assessment data from face to face history survey classes that use an online discussion component with those that have only in-class discussion. The data include both quantitative and qualitative materials. Preliminary comparisons of grades show that while mean final averages between courses with online discussion are not significantly higher than those with face to face discussions, in written evaluations of the course, students themselves perceive learning is enhanced when using the online discussion component. Included in the study are examples of best practices for improving online discussion, a sample discussion rubric, and ideas for curriculum planning when using online discussions in combination with face to face courses.
