Here is Sarah Stewart talking to to Lorraine Storry Mockford who is the Health and Human Services Alternate Delivery Coordinator at the Nova Scotia Community College, Nova Scotia, Canada and Pam Harnden who is a postgraduate midwifery student at Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin New Zealand.
"I have been fascinated by the process of asynchronous communication in discussion boards for years, starting with my participation in various self-help and literature groups in the early 1990s. As a faculty member I brought asynchronous discussions to my classroom through course internet groups (Yahoo, Google). About 10 years ago I started helping my Academic School to implement asynchronous discussions in both onsite and online courses using the WebBoard. We now have training for faculty interested in using asynchronous communication effectively."
