Please describe your experience with the Rotisserie during this BOLD series. How did your rotisserie discussions differ from other online discussions you've had? Were your posts and the posts of others substantively different that they would have been using other discussion tools? Did you participate more or less in the discussions due to the nature of the Rotisserie discussions? Did you take more or less time writing your answers than you would have on a typical discussion board?
The system is very good for encouraging intelligent commentary, but it does not stimulate community development as much as typical discussion boards. The content of the responses is better than usual. This may be due to the subject matter of the course more than the working of the rotisserie.
The felling of being in a conversation is not as present in this system. I liked the assignment aspect of the rounds. It was a good incentive to stay involved. i would be very interested in seeing the system used to discuss events occurring each day. i think it would be interesting to use the assignments and ratings to work through a more isolated problem that all participants are intimately aware of.
For structured projects I think H2O is a very useful addition to the current set of online interaction solutions.
..is what I said too.
