Student Evaluation of Discussion Forum
During the semester in which the science education students participated in
the online forum, they expressed a range of reactions. Some students had initial
difficulty accessing the forum and adding responses. Once the students became
familiar with the forum structure, they participated regularly and
enthusiastically. In the final course evaluations, technology was singled out
repeatedly as a highlight of the course. One student stated that the forum was
one of the strengths of the class.
