Building a Dynamic Discussion

Exemplar thumbnail


Nicole Runyon, an Instructor at California Maritime Academy, designed a discussion in which students are given the option to include a video that shows a project from their workplace. This option creates a more enriching experience as students also expand their technology use to achieve the objective. Due to bandwidth issues with the student population, it's important to keep the text response as an option as well.
