    2/5,
    It's a shame becuase the first post, there was a lot of responses and interactions with the group taking the class. It dwindled down to 0 posts from the class participants and 0 responses from the professor after the first post. I think if Em would have provided more encouragement and prompting, there may have been more participation. I was disappointed.
