Foster communication between participants.

Phrase your discussion contributions in ways that will encourage further responses from students, and draw connections between students’ comments. Try to avoid “over¬facilitating.” You don’t need to answer every question and settle every point!

When you do post messages, try to push the discussion forward by raising additional questions.
