Good point! I was assuming a paced cohort that would be assigned a discussion forum to complete within a fixed period, usually one week.

The scenario doesn't apply to online learning environments where the asynchronous discussions are totally open ended, for example, LAK11.

It would be difficult to apply the same analytics to these two quite different scenarios, although they can both be described as online forums.
