Discussion boards as a platform for sharing composition assignments

ABSTRACT – Most learning management systems feature online discussion forums, allowing students and instructors to communicate asynchronously outside of class meetings. However, beyond their ability to exchange text messages, most also include the option of attaching small files to user posts. It has also become common for audio software to export projects as MP3 files, a file format that today’s students are very familiar with. These two technologies, discussion boards and MP3 files, can be easily combined to implement a powerful system for tracking student progress on music composition and audio production assignments.
