Previous research on improving online discussion participation rates and critical thinking skills has mainly focused on question types or the instructor’s role as facilitator. Studies have shown video to be a motivator, raising student engagement in a course. This study investigates the effects of question modalities (text, video, or dual) on response rates and critical thinking skills in online discussions with pre-service teachers. Differences between text only, video only, and dual modality conditions will be analyzed by the dependent variables of word count, degree of answer completion, and level of higher-order thinking.
