Hoarding Saves Time on Discussion Boards

The second or third time you facilitate an online course, you’ll notice that you start to repeat yourself. There are only so many ways to illicit more feedback or reply to the same questions. You’ll see combinations of words appearing over and over again and notice which trigger the liveliest discussions. For example:

“Make sure to respond to a couple other people before moving on.”

“What do you think? Do you agree or disagree?”

Make your job easier by saving your responses for the next time you facilitate that course. It’s a big time-saver, because with a couple small changes, you’re set to respond to future sections with less typing and thinking. You’ll be glad you have good responses at your fingertips that save time in the future.
