Abstract

This paper examines how learners interact reciprocally in computer-mediated discussion (CMD) class, especially in synchronous online discussion class. This study focuses on what kinds of feedback messages are exchanged and how they function as a motivator in the course. As a catalyst for CMD interaction, how peer feedback messages can be categorized is mainly explored based on a qualitative research method. Given this, their characteristics and the dynamics of CMD are identified. And what kinds of feedback messages in a thread are useful for active CMD interaction is also articulated. This study extends the meaning of feedback from evaluative feedback to various kinds of feedback messages in online discussion class. Based on these cornerstones, seven categories of FM are identified, which are divided into motivator and no motivator respectively.
