IRC Seeks Faculty Input on Online Discussion Tools

The Instructional Resource Center (IRC) is coordinating a review of faculty needs in online discussion tools, including an evaluation of TownHall, the tool currently in use. As part of the review, IRC has developed a brief survey about online discussion tools.

In addition, IRC will be sponsoring demonstrations of several online discussion tools for comparison with TownHall. To volunteer as a reviewer of TownHall and other discussion tools, sign up at the end of the survey. Even if this process results in a recommendation to use another online discussion tool, TownHall will continue to be supported until faculty and staff members and students using it have successfully migrated to any replacement product.
