Encouraging Web-Based Discussion
This chapter deals with the value of student discussion, and the Web-based wherewithal to support and encourage discussion. It would be hard to fault an approach to devising new systems of learning, such as when planning to use the WWW as a communications vehicle, that begins with a review of what seems to work. In the opening chapters, the work of Pressley and McCormick  was cited several times as a source of suggestions about teaching. The Handbook of Research on Improving Student Achievement offers both generic suggestions and content-specific suggestions for consideration.
