What Motivates you? How do you apply Motivation theories?

Online discussion messages should be significant. There are a variety of ways to do this, including:

 Providing concrete examples, perhaps from your own experience

 Describing possible consequences or implications

 Challenging something that has been posted in the discussion – perhaps by playing “devil’s advocate”

 Posing a clarifying question

 Suggesting a different perspective or interpretation

 Pulling in related information from other sources – books, articles, websites, other courses, etc.
