Abstract: Online learning is an instructional design that enables colleges and universities to develop courses that provide students who prefer online learning as a format that increases scheduling flexibility. This also gives the institutions greater use of facilities and resources. This paper examines the research that has been done, as well as, the proceess that should be used to enhance the online experience through Threaded Scholarly Discourse (TSD). TSD, when designed and implemented as described within this paper, will provide students with a learning experience equal to or greater than the traditional face to face model.
