Research has shown that discussion forums add value to traditional and online classroom experiences. However, while many instructors embrace discussion forums to add interactivity in online courses as well as encourage class-room activity outside of class, individually reading and manually grading student discussion posts can be a daunting and time consuming process for the instructor.
