Certain processes of coding electronic discussions have been shown to improve the quality of argumentation styles in online discussions. This paper addresses a) a teacher education course in physical education where cognotes are used to prompt students to consider more substantive electronic discussion interaction b) an inclusive education course "aligned in time-frame" to the physical education course such that the transfer of skills to other courses (without prompting) can be judged.
