Asynchronous Communication

I currently use Blackboard Discussion Forums and email for Asynchronous
communication. Discussion forums are for substantive reflection on subject matter, guided by rubrics. Email is for announcements and one-on-one communication.

Polling could be used with  a student response system (clickers). We have access to Turning Point clickers. I found this link to be worth investigating after this class
