Abstract

This paper considers student use of an online discussion forum in a second year Biology course and how that participation may be an indicator of increased student success in the course. The authors discuss how participation in the online discussion forum is a form of public writing in which the students need to have an understanding of the topic about which they are writing. It is this practice of writing with a clear understanding that may increase students' success in the course and not simply the use of online communications.
