This new Good Practice Guide provides a long overdue introduction to the use of one of the most widely available and easy to use elearning tools - the discussion board. The Guide provides a wealth of practical advice about how to start using discussion boards effectively in the Higher Education and Further Education Context. Advice is given on how to design meaningful tasks, how to moderate the boards to ensure smooth and effective communication between students and solutions to the question of whether to assess contributions or not and how gets a chapter of its own. The final chapter deals specifically with the use of discussion boards in a Creative Writing context.

It is hoped that the guide will inspire and encourage both you and your department to get involved in using discussion boards to enrich the student experience.

The report is a description of the state of C&IT in relation to English teaching in the UK (Published in December 2002) and is therefore relevant to anyone interested in the development of the subject as a whole.

The report ostensibly describes the C&IT project undertaken by the Subject Centre in 2001-2002 and provides full descriptions of the former ‘Learning Link’ database and the C&IT Roadshows that were the main project outputs. The report points to the factors which are encouraging and discouraging the application of C&IT, and makes a series of recommendations for future developments.
