Abstract

The objective of this research was to assess the effect that the introduction of regular dialogue, as opposed as simple interaction could have on students’ participation to ADFs and on the quality level of the content of their posts. To do so, two groups were observed in the context of an online graduate course on Project Management, developed and delivered by an American University. The first group was engaged into constant dialogue by its facilitator and the second group had a more simple interaction with its facilitator. Students’ posts were analyzed using the framework of Davidson-Shivers et al (2012). Results show that engaging dialogue with students makes them more active and more attentive to the quality of their work.
