Hey folks! A few of you asked about the difference between the comments section (found on the bottom of each page) and the forums (a separate tab and separate page). Here’s a good way to think about it.
- The comment section is designed for quick responses to each day’s lectures – easy-access to respond to question prompts, etc.
- The forum sections designed to hold longer discussions with groups of students about specific topics. The forums are a bit more permanent and can be structured by specific topics (for example, one of you might start a topic on “Workplace Issues and E-mail”). Any registered student can start a topic, as general or specific as you would like.
I’ll be monitoring and responding to both, so you’ll hear from me either way. Happy MOOCing!
