Directions for Threaded Discussions Threaded discussion is a common component of many online courses, as it simulates traditional classroom discussion. Traditional classroom discussions are an example of synchronous communication, in which all students must be in the same location at the same time in order to participate. Threaded discussions, on the other hand, take place asynchronously, as students log in to the class at different times and post to the threaded discussions at their convenience. Threaded Discussion Facts Check your Course Syllabus for your Instructor's guidelines and policies for threaded discussion. You are generally expected to respond to a topic set by the Instructor, as well as respond (reply) to at least one of your colleagues’ postings. A unit may include one or more topics for discussion. Always return to the Discussion area after you have posted to ensure that your posting appears. You may be expected to respond to a discussion within a set timeframe. Your discussion posts may be graded on the quality of the comments, as well as on grammar and spelling. It is a best practice to compose discussion responses in a word-processing program, and then copy and paste them into the discussion when needed. Postings
