Abstract

This study investigated one WebCT module in which two cohorts of students used online discussion as the principal component of their online learning. The two cohort groups of 22 adult students were enrolled in bachelor of applied emergency services administration program. The students were in an undergraduate-level course of organizational behaviour delivered asynchronously. Data were collected from surveys and online database. The facilitator approached the online discussion moderation in an alternative way to avoid the moderating from onerousness. Initial analysis of the data indicate that the two cohort groups approached their discssions in a somewhat different manner. Their perception of the discussion and the module as a whole differed accordingly. The possible connection between the facilitator's discussion moderating and the two cohort groups' participation in discussion was explored.
