More Than Just Discussion Boards: Working to Make an Asynchronous Course Interactive and Engaging
Abstract: The purpose of this roundtable paper presentation is to discuss preliminary explorations into making an online course more interactive and engaging for students who traditionally take face-to-face courses at a small, Midwestern, Appalachian university. As part of this discussion, I would like the opportunity to discuss the study with others, develop the survey and the next iteration of the course for research purposes. The data for this research will include survey data, peer evaluations and the final course reflection. The data will be analyzed using inductive analysis. The primary researcher hopes to have some preliminary results from an initial survey and peer evaluations before the conference in March.
