Advice on Online Student Forums

 

Become one of those ‘blinkered’ students, because their inclination has always been to constantly look over their shoulder and resent those that are ahead, therefore they generally carry out this technique as it insulates them from feelings associated with not having the competitive student streak gene and thus the blinkered students can go at their own pace with a stronger sense of purpose.

*

Utilise those postings of students that are ahead as ‘previews’ of what one should or shouldn’t be doing, and ‘examples’ for gaining further understandings from each activity, as believe it or not, the advanced students or those that are ahead will be none the wiser of this activity by those that are behind them, thus their academic egos can’t be inflated, so no worries there at this cloaking devise carried out by working smartly students.

*

Only concentrate on the course website that appears on your student homepage, and post into the relevant forum when ready, then rush out by signing off quickly with top speed, and only check in to see if your particular posting has been looked at by only the moderating tutors, (patience is the key here tutors are well known to take their time).

*

Aim to be at the top of the game by actually coming in last: the last word game. This is because being the very last posting gets the whole tutors and forums attention; due to the very fact that your posting appears right at the very top of the forum even though the ‘last modified date’ reads of few days over when the task has reached near completion. So, in all appearances you’d appear first then, so this could make you happy.

But warning:

many like to play the ‘last word’ game and there can be a messy scramble for this position, as this tactic is well known among veteran forum users, but there are those who rise above this method and only concentrate on participating as much as possible to get the most out of the course overall, so by the end of their study they’ve achieved something personal for themselves.
