Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of using educational videos in two different online discussion forums on students’ retention, transfer of knowledge and the overall quality of their discussion participation and metacognitive management of the process. The investigators employed mixed methods to examine the relationship between metacognitive strategies, academic performance, and learning modalities. The results revealed significant and positive correlation between students’ participating in the wiki discussion method and improved test scores, Furthermore, students’ reflections indicated that metacognitive strategies such as reflection, re-stating and re-teaching were important factors in helping them learn and apply the new material.
