aggregated metadata for online discussions

here’s a quick look at the aggregated metadata for all of the online discussions I’m using in my thesis:

About the same number of posts in each platform, with a bit more of a time-spread in the WordPress discussions, substantially longer posts in WordPress, about the same (non) use of images, more links in WordPress posts, and more attachments in Blackboard posts.

  1. Interesting comparisons-sorry but how many courses in each (Bb & Blog) .are you analyzing? I guess I have to read the methodology section to learn more about your research.

    1. It’s one course, conducted in 2 discussion platforms (about half in Blackboard, about half in WordPress). And I have to write up the methodology section first… ;-)

The spammers win. I've disabled comments. Again. It's just not worth having to deworm my site from the inane autospam jabber that trickles through the spam filters. Sorry. I can be contacted via the Contact form here on the site, or out on the internets.

BUT I WANT TO POST A COMMENT HERE. WITNESS THE OPPRESSION INHERENT IN THE SYSTEM.
