Online Discussion Tools

Use electronic discussion tools to build spaces for ongoing conversations. The discussion board in Canvas can be used for a fairly traditional asynchronous conversation. Other tools that might be considered are Voice Thread (which allows people to respond to images or other media using audio recordings), Google Moderator (which allows people to suggest questions/ideas, respond to them, and then “vote” on them) and Squabbler (which lets people record 30 second videos about an argument and then invite someone to take a counter position and record their response).
