The Technology Source: Extending the Pedagogy of Threaded-Topic Discussions
An interesting article that lists the disadvantages of using the "threaded" model for asynchronous discussion in e-learning, and then higlights a working solution:
"However, we have now incorporated the key group-support features of FORUM into a cross-platform, JAVA-based system called Forum MATRIX. Not only can students view the scrollable documents in their Web browser, but, most importantly, they can also check out a document for inserting text and graphics, editing, or for making links (to Web sites, to MATRIX documents, or to pop-up notes)."
The solution looks very similar to the way the Journal of Interactive Media in Education (JIME) conduct their peer-review.
