Another benefit of blogging

I am taking my first online course this summer. I have designed online courses but never taken one before. (I know! Shame on me!) I am really enjoying the experience.

What I have noticed is that I am one of only 3 students in the course who is commenting on the posts of other students on the discussion board. The instructor continuously asks us to do that, but it isn't happening much.

Without a doubt it is easy for me to do because of blogging. Read what others write and comment on it -- What could be more natural?

I'm not sure that being a blogger makes the critical difference between posting to a class discussion or not. Human nature being what it is, many won't do something unless it's mandatory.

In the online courses I've taken, "discussion" is an integral part of the student's grade. Guidlenines for commenting on posts are given in the syllabus.

Unfortunately, this may be the only way that your professor will be able to promote class discussions.
