Unlike text, audio and video conversation, the discussion forum is an unsynchronized technology, which does not require all participants to be online simultaneously and one of the strengths that the discussion forum provides to the online learning community is the ability to allow learners from a variety of time zones to interact at time that suits the individual learner. ‘Web 2.0’ technologies, which place learners at the centre of online activities and facilitate supposedly new forms of creation, collaboration, and consumption..
