Blackboard Tip: Use A “Group Leads” Forum to Summarize Multiple Small Group Discussions

discussionsumMany faculty members may find it difficult to keep track of, respond to, or even just be aware of a small group discussion assignment across numerous groups. They may not even utilize the discussion feature because of doubts that large courses might not benefit from the interactions due to volume.

See this month's SHSU Online eLearning Support Blog for a great Best Practice that can help ensure that students are communicating with each other, and that all students in your course can benefit from the discussions that take place in groups they are not in. Create a “Group Leads” discussion forum, and then follow the steps outlined in the support blog.
