[Abstract]: Online courses may appear to be similar to one another because they use a common set of tools to present material in web pages and provide facilities for discussion. However, the ways in which the tools are used can result in quite different experiences for course participants. This session will draw on experiences from the Master of Education program at the University of Southern Queensland and the Education Technology graduate program at Purdue University. Examples of different course models - print plus, substantive conversation, performance coaching, virtual seminar, online conference and simulation - that can be created using the common tools will be presented and discussed. Strategies for initiating, sustaining and concluding meaningful online discussions in the contexts of these models will also be presented.
