Your online participation in this course contributes 10% of your final course grade. Now that the course is almost over, I’m asking you to review your online participation in this course, compare your participation to that of your peers, and assess your contributions to the learning community. Please give yourself an online participation score between 0 and 10 points, and email it to me with a justification (a paragraph or two). If I think your score is reasonable, given your justification, I’ll use that as your online participation grade. Your online participation self-assessment is due at the start of class on Wednesday, December 4th.
To assess your online participation, focus on blog posts and bookmarks on Diigo, as well as other forms of online participation, if any. In each of these areas, I usually ask you for specific contributions — posts that responded to particular questions, or bookmarks about specific topics, or tags and comments that fit certain parameters. As you look over your contributions to the course, keep these requests in mind. Also consider how your online participation contributed to the learning of your peers in the course.
