This chapter addresses how a typical discussion board can transform the learning process into a collaborative environment that creates extended thinking processes promoting successful student outcomes. To illustrate a collaborative learning environment, teaching methodologies should focus on assisting a student to become diversified independent thinkers. Creating a diversified independent thinker infuses independent and cooperative critical analysis through varied topical issues.
