Forums vs. Social Networks?

Clark Quinn

I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. They could also do it as comments on a blog. So, I'm trying to figure out what's going to be the right software / service to adopt, but I'm also trying to think about the differences in: Forum / Threaded Discussion / Group Examples are Google Groups and Yahoo Groups.

Reflections of a mooc unvirgin

E-Learning Provocateur

Before I signed up, I had decided to do a mooc because I was blogging about them but had never experienced one for myself. An announcement board kept us up to date, the discussion forums were easy to find, and the final assessment was explained clearly from Day 1.
