Expert Advisor Help

As you know from a recent blog, I am an expert advisor in The Flatclass Project for a group that is investigating virtual communication. I check the students' wiki daily for changes they have made; however, there hasn't been much progress. I am new to this experience and would like a student to reply to one of my posts so I know they are at least acknowledging the fact that I am here to assist them. Needless to say, I am getting frustrating with the lack of response.

If anyone else is or ever has been an expert advisor for a project such as this, could you please give me some suggestions to possibly increase the communication between me and students in my group?

  1. I don't know how to get the discussion going with them. The key is to make your ideas known so that they will know what you have to say.


  2. They will not talk to me. Therefore, I discovered a topic area that wasn't assigned to any student and simply created content. After the fact, I asked if this was okay, and still received no response. If nothing else, I am learning from the information that they have created.

  3. Billie,

    I'm having the same experience. I check back every other day but since I posted on the discussion board all discussion has died. Haha....I don't know if I should slap myself or what, but yeah, no responses here either.
