Assignment 3 progress

Of the assignments so far, this one is my favourite. There is so much written about discussion forums but to actually use our own class postings to conduct an analysis of skills employed or demonstrated in such a forum is truely interesting. Actually looking at each message and determining the level of thought and the processes behind it is giving me a whole new outlook on how research into discussion forums has taken place.

It is also a great experience to conduct a study using a framework that is popular and capture the results in a 1000 word essay that mimics the manner in which any empirical research would be presented. Excellent preparation for thesis work!
