Communicate daily in your free time with your professor and classmates around the globe
The Online Discussion Forum is an electronic network facilitating active communication and interaction among all students enrolled in the same course. When you post a message to the Online Discussion Forum, the post is immediately available to all other students in the course, allowing students to discuss the week's readings in their free time. A weekly Student Host directs students to perform certain tasks as outlined in the online course guide.
All discussions are facilitated by the course professor, who helps to guide the students. The Online Discussion Forum plays an integral part in AU's online programs by facilitating the out-of-class interaction among students necessary for effective exchange of ideas. The Online Discussion Forum ensures that learning and interaction do not end when the class does.
The Online Discussion Forum allows you to:
- Discuss your assignments daily with your professor and fellow students in your free time
- Gain valuable insight from students living on the opposite side of the globe
