  2. 2. This paper aims to add literature in online ways of communication; to impart teaching techniques and management of online discussions; and to see the relevance of social interaction in enabling class discussions.<br />Online discussion in this paper is referred to as synchronous communication of students and teachers situated remotely from each other, facilitated by computer networks and online application to discuss class lessons as an equivalent of a face-to-face class session. <br />A big class size refers to a face-to-face class with thirty (30) to forty (40) students. The same big class size is used to define the class size to be managed in the online discussion.<br />

Introduce yourself and mention your section. After that, you can participate in the discussion.MOFTECH students can use English, Filipino or broken English or broken Filipino in the discussion. As much as possible, stick to the subject talked about. Everyone is encouraged to share ideas, opinions, experiences and knowledge. Pls inform the moderator if you are leaving the conference room or signing out already.The moderators are tasked to encourage the interest and sharing of facts and opinions in the discussion without being rude or impolite to others. Moderators can also call the attention of a student if there's any misbehavior (cursing, encouraging other students to destroy the topic, use of excessive large fonts etc.) <br />Self-disclosure is part of grounding<br />
