6 Summary of Session 4
There are many reasons to contribute to online learning forums. Short and long contributions all add up to be valuable elements of any whole conversation, forming a varied and interesting discussion on different subjects or topics.
Online conversations, as with face-to-face ones, can comprise thoughts, ideas and debates that are expressed through direct and straightforward statements. Or they can be articulated through more playful and unpredictable messages. There is potential, then, for any participant on online learning forum discussions to explore both the known and the unknown, shaping interactions in interesting ways, while acquiring a range of interpersonal skills along the way.
Remember: the more people who get involved in the conversation, the more interesting your online learning forum will be. If you are already part of one, why not use some of the techniques introduced here to help you with your next contribution?
