Discussion Board Engagement Study

Does instructor engagement on discussion board activities affect an online student's grade?

When it comes to online education, a key factor in a student's success is that the student feels a personal connection to the University, the instructor, and their fellow classmates. Discussion boards can be a great way for students to build that feeling of connection.

Over a six-month period of time, I recorded the amount and quality of discussion board engagement for 15 instructors teaching the same course online. I also recorded the final grades for the discussion board activities for all students within that time.

I'm currently analyzing the collected data and intend to submit the results for publication.
