Abstract

Online discussion in a forum plays a crucial role in the delivery of distance learning materials. We should not use the learning management system as depository of contents but as a platform for active exchange of ideas and collective reflections in order to generate new knowledge. This paper looks into online training of lecturers using e-tivities to promote online discussions. The training lasted 10 weeks and the participants have learned the key skills needed to host an online discussion and to function as e-instructors. This paper also deals with the various aspects of content development for distance learning modules and the problems encountered. We faced difficulties getting writers even though they were paid to write. The issue of intellectual property has kept some would-be writers away. The menace of plagiarism has spread to the lecturers, we discovered some writers who plagiarized diagrams from the text book.
