  • 7. Participatory Learning is Commonplace “Since the current generation of college students has no memory of the historical moment before the advent of the Internet, we are suggesting that participatory learning as a practice is no longer exotic or new but a commonplace way of socializing and learning.

  • 32. Student Comments I think that the rapport is equal if not more between the students in this particular class compared to actually attending one on campus. ... In a campus-based class no one would hardly ever have the chance to read each others' work. When signing up for this class I thought it would be the same as the others… a bunch of reading, no interaction and the occasional test. This class was nothing like I had ever taken before. I really enjoyed all the interaction between the students. It is pretty close to actually having a class without actually being present. (Pacansky-Brock, 2008) Wednesday, April 7, 2010
  • 33. Student Comments (cont’d) VoiceThread is an amazing tool and a great way to bring the students/teacher together and to learn. I really feel that this tool was a big part of our learning and I hope to see more teachers utilizing it in their on-line classes. ... I truly am not looking forward to the end of this class. [The professor] has created a virtual world for her students to communicate with each other and learn from each other. The VoiceThread provided an opportunity for all of us to see each others' comments. It helped me to learn and feel like I was a part of a class even though I was in class from my home.

  • 43. Student Survey Results 161 students surveyed, 138 responses received (86% response rate) 68% of students surveyed reported they spent more time to write their blog posts in Ning than they would to write a traditional discussion board post. 83% of students surveyed reported the use of the blogs and comments in Ning was an effective discussion tool. (Macfarlane, Molina, Pacansky-Brock, 2008) Wednesday, April 7, 2010
  • 44.

(Macfarlane, Molina, Pacansky-Brock, 2008) Wednesday, April 7, 2010
  • 45. Student Comments Please provide some feedback about the way Ning has been used in this class. Has it been helpful? Why or why not? How would you change the way it's being used? Ning is a great way to keep the atmosphere upbeat. Makes the class seem less cold as an online class tends to be, makes it friendly and very interactive with other students. I love Ning! There is such a sense of accomplishment when I look at my page. Knowing that I wrote all those blogs and other students read and appreciate them is such a motivator to continue the good work. (Macfarlane, Molina, Pacansky-Brock, 2008) Wednesday, April 7, 2010
  • 46. Student Comments (cont’d) I really enjoyed NING because honestly it reminded me a lot of myspace/facebook. I could talk with my peers whenever I needed to and it was really effective to blog my thoughts and assignments and see other students do the same. It was odd at first, seeing people's pictures and 'blogging', as I have never participated in this kind of forum before, but I found that I liked it, I felt more like I knew my fellow classmates than in other classes. Ning makes it feel like a classroom, I mean we're all here at some time or another interacting with one another. (Macfarlane, Molina, Pacansky-Brock, 2008) Wednesday, April 7, 2010
