They suggest the formation of “degree granting bodies”, small administrative units with the autonomy to take on students and faculty, and performing the function of providing credentials (read “degrees”). This format requires that there be a design process and the presence of experts who would provide authenticity. The state’s role (or that of private education providers) would then be to provide these networks or clusters with adequate access to technology and shared infrastructure.

    Once feedback is provided to each team (in the respective team forums), I often observe participants having a quick look at other teams’ work and feedback. When designing eWorkshops in Moodle, I never use the groups setting in forums. The ‘groups’ setting means that participants can only see the work done by their own team. Instead, I create a separate forum for each team. Learners are not blocked from accessing other teams’ work. This often surprises fellow e-course designers. I’m sometimes challenged for keeping the forums open and visible to all. Others think it’s an oversight.

In most online courses at universities, tutors set a minimum number of discussion forum posts per week. For example, students must contribute at least twice in each discussion to receive credit for participation. The assessment of the number of contributions is deemed necessary to ensure students’ participation.
