Discussion Board Forum

This Discussion Board Forum replaces in-class conversations in this online course. It is comprised of three parts:

  1. A thread of 150+ words, which responds to the instructions is due by Thursday, so that your classmates have time to read and reply.
    1. Note: a good thread will either cite the textbook or the Bible.
  2. Reply to a classmate with 75+ words by Monday.
  3. Reply to a second classmate with 75+ words by Monday.

Each thread should demonstrate course-related knowledge. Replies should add to the conversation and go beyond “I agree”. Replies should provide substantive additional thoughts regarding classmates’ threads.

Prompt: Address the following topics (150 words total minimum). Do not respond in a list or bullets. Your thread should be in paragraph format. Remember to cite the textbook or the Bible.

  • Paragraph 1 – A goal of this course was to share effective academic strategies to be a successful online student at a Christian university, such as time management, writing, Biblical worldview, academic integrity, learning styles/adult responsibilities, finding online support resources, and educational skills like note taking or test taking. Textbook readings, course videos, chapter activities, and other assignments helped accomplish this goal. Do you feel that you are now better prepared to be an online student? Why or why not? Where do you think the above mentioned educational skills will be needed and/or be strengthened during the remainder of your coursework and academic career? How else, outside of Liberty University, might you master these skills in order to help you succeed in your career and life? (75+ words)
  • Paragraph 2 – A second goal of this course was to utilize research and technology to enhance student success. Textbook readings, course videos, use of Blackboard, PowerPoint, and Word, and assignments such as the Email Assignment and Information Literacy/Article Evaluation helped accomplish this goal. Do you feel you can now better use email communication, electronic resources, software, Blackboard, and information literacy skills? Why or why not? Where do you think your research and technology skills will be needed and/or be strengthened during the remainder of your coursework and academic career? How else, outside of Liberty University, might you master these skills in order to help you succeed in your career and life? (75+ words)
