This paper focuses on the central role of the asynchronous Discussion Forum in online social science and humanities courses. Given the differences between the online and classroom experience the design and evaluation of online discussion questions should take account of the special features of the computer mediated learning environment. This study makes use of data collected from student discussions in online history courses and from surveys that asked the students for their reflections on their online discussion experience. Results from these data became the basis for proposing ten guidelines for online discussion forums.
