Your responses to other students must be more than a simple "Good job" or "I agree with your post." They must also not just be "Let me add to your post..." Instead, your responses to each other should do three things:
1. Acknowledge the other student's post with some form of recognition about what they posted
2. Relate their posting to something you have learned or are familiar with
3. Add to the conversation by asking additional questions about their post, or discussing their topic further
Remember, this is a discussion forum. Your engagement with each other should be similar to how you would speak with each other if you were seated at the same table talking.
