Increasing Student Participation in Online Group Discussions via Facebook
Miller, Scott T.
Astronomy Education Review, v12 n1 p010103-1?010103-10 Dec 2013
A comparison study between two different methods of conducting online discussions in an introductory astronomy course was performed to determine if the use of Facebook as an online discussion tool has an impact on student participation as well as student response time. This study shows that students using Facebook for their online discussions participated more frequently and responded more quickly than students using a traditional online discussion forum. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
