Abstract

This qualitative study describes the ways in which eight professors integrated and evaluated asynchronous online discussions in face-to-face undergraduate and graduate courses. The different ways in which the professors used online discussions in face-to-face courses in the context of their course goals, provided feedback to the students, and graded online discussions are presented and discussed in this paper. Based on the findings, recommendations are made for the use of certain strategies in specific contexts when using online discussions in on-campus courses.
