This class does not have discussion boards. The Regent University Economics faculty have established and maintain a blog called Economics is Everywhere (https://rueconblog.wixsite.com/website). Instead of a discussion board requirement, ALL online economics classes participate in the blog. You are encouraged to participate frequently but there are two weeks (Week 2 and 6) in which your participation is for a grade. You are expected to post at least three quality posts on or by the time those weeks are concluded that use the material we have discussed. The goal is to post your draft milestone and reply to your classmates adding value to their post. While the goal is to post your milestone and reply to your classmates, its okay to have at most one of your post be a reply to any post within the blog that interests you. It is a chance to interact with students and faculty from all over the world and in all the Economics classes that are ongoing in the semester. It’s important to include at least one reference in APA format per week. This site helps with citing: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_style_introduction.html.
Please note that you would need to request access to the site as only students can access this site. Use your regent.edu email to be allowed access. Your instructor will allow you access once requested. If you dont get access within 1-2 hours, email your instructor.Below are links to some good public economics blogs to give you ideas on how to respond to blog posts. These all have links to many other blogs if you want ideas and to see how others do this.
