Participation / Artifacts
Individual discussions, participation and assignments all require the following:
Was the artifact, discussion, posted thread Substantive???
concise and to the point, stuff not fluff
, relevant and directly related to the material
explained clearly and demonstrating an understanding of the material
professional, technical, not first person syntax and
opinions. Post threads that are
Post at least 100 words or more per thread, this is only a guideline
Was the discussion in your own words? Do not copy work of others, cite the resources
If you have questions and they are substantive, post in the main classroom for credit.
Participation doesn't mean all answers, detailed questions, active conversations that are
substantive, will be marked substantive
Participation is replying to others discussion questions in the main forum. Answering the
discussion questions, is discussion question credit, not participation.
If I ask a student a question, anyone can respond. The discussions are for everyone to join in
and have fun.
