The instructor should also be aware that as discussion continues, and more messages are posted, some students may need technical support for issues such as how to sort messages and how search by key words, name, date, etc. 2 Tension between Subject and Rules According to one study [10], if participation in a discussion board contributes to the final grade then the discussion will be markedly different from non-credit, online discussions. In the first instance, students will be more concerned with the evaluation criteria, such as the number of postings per week, the quality of postings, the difference between starting a new topic and replying to a topic.

Therefore, it is recommended that instructors clarify the evaluation criteria as well as keep students on topic, and remind students when the deadline is approaching. 3 Tension between Subject and Community The core concept of ALN is collaboration and sharing knowledge. Salmon indicates that “When participants feel ‘at home’ with the online culture, and reasonably comfortable with the technology, they move on to contributing” [7].
