Technology Tools for Online Communication, Collaboration and Peer Support: Introduction to Ed Discussion
Ed Discussion is a tool for online Q&A and threaded discussion among students or between students, instructors and TAs. It is being piloted at Penn during the 2021-2022 academic year as a potential replacement for Piazza to promote communication, collaboration and problem-solving and to help students better understand course materials. In this session, CTL staff will introduce the tool’s features and discuss how the tool can be set up and managed to meet instructors’ needs and goals for the spring semester.
This session will run for one hour, with an additional 15 minutes reserved for any remaining questions and answers.
