Research study on the use of discussion forums for critique


I am a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois. I am interested in studying the use of online discussion forums for critique and how they can be improved. I have a short (11 question) survey and I would like to invite you to complete and return it to me.

The survey contains background questions about the value and role of critique and ends with specific questions about the use of technology. It would be most helpful if you could focus on assessing the use of forums such as this one in forming your response to the technology-specific questions. The data will be kept confidential and only ever presentd in aggregate form. I would appreciate hearing about your experiences and learning from them. My return email address is in the survey.
