Abstract: This paper reports the results of having students self-code posts in online discussion using practical inquiry model coding template. It was found that the students’ online discourse centered on Exploration and Integration phases. Self-coding increased students’ awareness of cognitive engagement, enabled them to monitor their online performance, and helped to promote their critical thinking.
